It's not an "us" and "them" situation.  FreeBSD ports are created and
maintained by the people who use the ports.  If someone wants to use
the software, they are free to provide a port that will comply with
the license.  So far one person has stated that they tried and gave
up.  Maybe the next person will be more successful.

Please excuse any delays as the result of my ISP's inability to implement
an MTA that is either RFC2821-compliant or matches their claimed behaviour.
