Is there a mechanism for suggesting a package to be added to the 
Ports Collection?

I have been personally trying to port synopsis 0.7 ( 
http://synopsis.fresco.org/index.html) with no success so far. 
Synopsis is a general source code documentation tool wiith 
(currently) support for C++ and Python.

When I try to build the code, I lose traction in a source file that 
wants to use the g++ math library.  I don't _think_ the port should 
be particularly difficult... for someone who understands such things. 
The build system requires a Posix environment with GNU make and GNU 
autoconf installed.

Unfortunately, Python/C/C++ is not my forte and the folks on the 
synopsis mailing list don't use FreeBSD.

I'd surely love to see synopsis added to the Ports collection.
