Policy on new ports

I'd be interested in the policy about new ports in the following situation:

The program has the GNU General Public License as published by the Free
Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or (at your option)
any later version.
The program is not in the FreeBSD ports system but can be compiled on
FreeBSD without problems with approx. 5 commands.
And because of that the author may not want his program in the ports

So will the program be added even if the author may disagree with that?
