That means that it is unmaintained. Any person interested may take it
at his hands.

The port net/linphone depends on net/linphone-base, however:

$ cd /usr/ports/net/linphone-base
broken by latest update to libosip2

Hence, linphone is broken because linphone-base is broken. And for the
latter (also unmaintained port) EXPIRATION_DATE is set. That means if
nobody takes care of the port, it will be removed after that date.
