ports/graphics/netpbm out of date

Both graphics/netpbm and graphics/netpbm-devel are *WAY*
out of date (5 to 6 years).  Many tools listed in the
documentation are not present in the FreeBSD port, and
many of the tools that are present are missing features.

What's making things is worse is the fact that the netpbm
ports don't include any documentation.  Instead they refer
to the online documentation which is way ahead of the
state of the FreeBSD port, as explained above.

Is anybody working on updating the netpbm ports?  Is there
any problem with it that I'm not aware of?

Best regards
