As a reminder, the last time this software was in the ports tree, the
developer threatened us with a lawsuit.  This repeats what he has
previously done to several other BSDs and several Linux distributions.
This is why ports for his software are no longer available for these

Whether the license has changed or not, the fact that the author feels
the desire to use lawsuits to achieve his goals makes his software too
much of a liability for FreeBSD to redistribute.
