Hi Martin,

Perhaps you can conditionalize the DISTNAME based on the FreeBSD version
number, as shown on this page:
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/porters-handbook/freebsd-versions.html?

If you do that, just make sure that the distinfo file has an entry for
each possible DISTNAME value, so the checksum verification will work on
any FreeBSD version.

Regards,
Greg
