With the small but important proviso that a new port must have a proper
maintainer (usually but not necessarily the person who sends the PR) --  
it is not permitted to create a port with the maintainer set to the
'unmaintained' value of ports at freebsd.org.  Don't let this put you off:
have a go at generating the port yourself.  Plenty of people on this list
will be happy to offer advice if you get into difficulties.  Maintaining a
port or three is neither particularly onerous nor difficult, looks good on
your CV and earns you karma points...
