I've added two patches to make it work on amd64, bumped the expiration
date and port revision (to 2), but I'm not sure if it can detect all
relevant partition types yet.  It detects my BSD UFS partitions, but not
my Windows 7 NTFS partitions, and it would probably also need ZFS

Is that tarball different from what's on sunsite and currently fetched
by the port?

Best regards
