CC'ing port maintainer

Here is the commit for timeb.h being deprecated and adding the #warning

Solutions are to either use a replacement for timeb.h (unknown by me
at this point), quit using timeb.h (not sure how guile depends on
this), or omit the -Werror from
/usr/ports/lang/guile/work/guile-1.8.6/Makefile and

Maintainer, please direct on how to proceed. As it sits without
modification the port is broken, even with -Wno-error set in
