According to the port's Makefile the maintainer is ports@ which means 
no one person is working on it.


shows all of the past PR's that the fwtk port has had.

Feel free to submit a pr with your patches attached...putting [PATCH] 
in the Synopsis field is the way you typically tell people that not 
only did you find a problem but also that you have found a fix.

(You might check out the gtk-send-pr application in the ports....makes 
it easier to see if you are missing things.
