If I'm not mistaken, a compat8x port would only likely be created during the RC process of 9.0 - ie: when it is known which libraries are needed in terms of having a different shlib rev.

All the while it's merely 9-CURRENT, folks are expected to handle building of their own ports (or pull packages from the usual places) -- another artefact of "it's -current, deal with it" (or words to that effect).
