My First Port

After twelve years in FreeBSD, I've finally come across a piece of
software that I need that isn't a port already.  The software is
mod_auth_xradius, for Apache:

I went through the porter's guide and made an attempt to build a port.
I'm sure it's wrong, so I'm not send-pr-ing it yet.  You can find my
port at:

While this program is small, Radius authentication for Web sites is
one of those things that is absolutely vital for those of us who need
it.  Having it in-tree would be really nice.

I would appreciate any comments, critiques, etc., before I submit
this.  (Or, if you ports guys would rather I submit it as-is and then
tell me all the things I did wrong, I'm OK with that too.)  While I'm
not a ports guy, I'm willing to try to maintain this.
