Ah, well that's something that I was going to mention. I've been over to

And I had a look at the package. I'm afraid that this is a bit outside 
of my domain (since, as I mentioned and Roman noticed) I am not a 
FreeBSD user, and also have zero package creation experience.
I have been considering recruiting a package manager on the SourceForge 
'Help Wanted' system:

but I'd like to check here first to see if there is anyone interested.


PS: Please continue to CC me, as I am not on the list. I have not CC'd 
Roman as per email footer request.
