devel/poco-ssl has been marked
  BROKEN= bad plist
for some time now.

? You can do whatever you want on your own system.  The reason given
for marking it BROKEN was a bad plist, and if that is the only thing
wrong with it, then you need only worry about it leaving unregistered
files behind after it is removed, or possibly conflicting with another
port.  If that's alright with you, then you may as well use NO_IGNORE
or TRYBROKEN as a workaround.

Oh, well.  If the maintainer won't do it, maybe you could take the
time to fix the plist and offer an option to install the docs?
