Ion3 license violation

Since the so-called package "maintainer" seems to have gone AWOL
(as is typical):

The version of Ion3 in FreeBSD ports at [1,2] is obsolete (3rc-20070927
is provided, but 3rc-20071109 is more than 28 days old), and must per
the license be upgraded, removed, or prominently marked as obsolete. 
The package also seems to "patch" Ion with the Xinerama module, again 
violating the license. (The way the package installs it, makes it appear
to be an official part of Ion, which it is not, and therefore when it 
is installed, the result must be considered a modified/patched version 
of Ion, which requires very explicit requests from the user and prominent
notices of unsupportedness.)
