First all all, thanks for your work.

Ideally a PR with a new port should pass all tests, so the commiter
doesn't have to do much work beside testing and the actual commit.
The usual wait time for a new port is about 2 weeks, but this can vary;
we have only so many commiters and they have a lot of work to do; the
best shape the new port is the greater the chances to be committed

Your ports has a 3 big problems: no $FreeBSD$ tag for cvs, the
PORTVERSION is illegal and has no MAINTAINER. For this to reasons the
port can't be committed.

I will send you a patch for the things I  see wrong in an hour. You
should reply to your PR with the corrected version of the port.

Unregistered ;) FreeBSD "user"
  "Intellectual Property" is   nowhere near as valuable   as "Intellect"
