Well, the problem is that we (FreeBSD) can't guarantee whether the
contents of a resulting package are secure or not, or really, what
the contents are at all.  I personally would only be comfortable with
a default setting of NO_PACKAGE in this case.  Individual users could
manually override it.

I don't know if there is a formal policy about such ports.  Probably,
there ought to be.
