The same is true for many other ports, as you can see in this list on
the portscout website:
This is a list of all unmaintained ports. The lines highlighted in
yellow are the ones where the port is known to be out-of-date.
There might also be some others where portscout didn't detect the
availability of a newer version.
Here's another list, this time listing ports by maintainer:
When I checked this just now, there were 4872 unmaintained ports, of
which 314 (6.44%) were known to be out-of-date.
According to http://www.freebsd.org/ports/index.html there are currently
21869 ports in the ports collection.
Doing a little math, that means that 22.3% of all ports are
unmaintained, but only 1.4% are both unmaintained and out-of-date.
Just thought I'd add a little perspective to Mark's reply. :)
