Is there a mechanism for suggesting a package to be added to ports?

I tried to build and install this on a FreeBSD-4.9 box, and its three issues
with it:

1) the math.h header needs to be included before the math functions are

2) on fbsd4 you have to link with '-pthread' instead of '-lpthread'.

3) in synopsis-0.7/Synopsis/Parsers/Cpp/ucpp/eval.c:78 you have to check for
FreeBSD as well (to get ulong typedef'ed). I *think* I added '||
defined(__FreeBSD__)' to the end of that line (not sure).

If you get them to fix the above, it'll build and install. Haven't tested if
the program actually works yet...
