Dear Tim,

Thank you for sending this email. As you might understand, people come and go on the project, things get fixed, imported, and left alone.
But.. the great part of our community is.. you can help! I see that this is hurting you badly.. you can change this, you can help us upgrading
the port, and making sure it entirely works. How about that? I invite you to become an active member of the community and help us to get
proper support.

Untill then, your email is noted and hopefully someone will have the time/motivation etc to fix this.

Thank you for using FreeBSD!
