The missing file is available as [1] now, but the person managing the
site confirmed that the project is dead. Its OS fingerprints database is
from 2000, and there's still net-mgmt/p0f, which seems to be actively
developed and more up to date.

If noone explicitly votes for keeping the port, I won't send a PR to fix
it, so it'll be removed with the next garbage collection run.
