You know, I'm almost certain these are not the only issues in this

Please, will someone step forward to maintain this port and look for and
correct outstanding security issues therein?  I can pass on some
information I have.

Otherwise (if a maintainer does *not* step forward), I will mark this
port FORBIDDEN.  The only reason I don't do it now is because a few
other ports depend upon this one :-(
