It also looks like PORTNAME is incorrect in both ports (mod_dosevasive20
claims to be mod_evasive20, and mod_evasive20 claims to be
mod_dosevasive20), adding to even more confusion:

$ grep ^PORTNAME ports/www/mod_dosevasive20/Makefile ports/www/mod_evasive20/Makefile
ports/www/mod_dosevasive20/Makefile:PORTNAME=      mod_evasive20
ports/www/mod_evasive20/Makefile:PORTNAME= mod_dosevasive20
