I have no actual interest in maintaining this port, as I don't use it,
however I was able to update the port to find a suitable site for
downloading and building. I found the hosting site with a google lookup, and
it is also listed as the only downloading reference off of Wikipedia.

It appears to work (i386):

[jhelfman at eggman ~]$ sudo /sbin/gpart show
=>       63  488281185  mirror/gm0  MBR  (233G)
          63  488279547           1  freebsd  [active]  (233G)
   488279610       1638              - free -  (819K)

=>        0  488279547  mirror/gm0s1  BSD  (233G)
           0    4194304             2  freebsd-swap  (2.0G)
     4194304  484085243             1  freebsd-ufs  (231G)

Here is a patch if someone would like to take it over, otherwise it will
