I've took a stab at it[1].  If you have a FreeBSD box handy and can test
it out I'll be glad to receive feedback.  I've never used openresolv nor
do I have a use for it at the moment.  I'm not sure if my removal of the
symlink was the right thing to do or not since I'm not familiar with how
the software works.  Can you test out the port and let me know if it
works normally?

Also, if you want to be the maintainer I can change it to your address
if I send a PR for it.
