www/mod_jk out dated?

I have a server with Apache and Tomcat installed using www/mod_jk2 as
the connector between the two. After a few hours of searching yesterday
I discovered that mod_jk2 is no longer being supported. Instead,
development has continued on the original mod_jk. Neither ports for
mod_jk or mod_jk2 have been updated since Dec 2004. mod_jk version
1.2.6 was the last port version. mod_jk is now at 1.2.13 which was
released 16 May 2005.
Details of mod_jk can be found at
What happens in this situation? I've never created a port, so am
probably not the best person to maintain it. I will be attempting to
build the latest mod_jk, however, I'm suprised how far out of date this
is. I thought a lot of people used FreeBSD as web servers (I guess not
java web servers).
