Well, there are two ports, print/lyx which is maintained by
mi at aldan.algebra.com, and print/lyx15 which has no maintainer. There
are also several PRs for lyx, including one to add a lyx16 port:

These PRs are owned by mi@, who I'm guessing is the same as
mi at aldan.algebra.com?

In any case, it looks like the field is wide open for you to take
action here ajtiM! Take a look at the PR for lyx16 as a starting
point, then take a look at
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/porters-handbook/index.html
to get an idea of how you might update it. Then send the update as a
followup to the lyx16 PR.

Hopefully someone will actually take some action on it at some point
soon. :)
