was for libpqxx-2.x.x.

It looks like there is a different port:


for libpqxx-3.1. Do you require the 2.x.x instead of the 3.x ?

It was dropped because nobody told the ports collection where the
libpqxx-2.x.x source can still be found. There seems to be no master site
left anywhere ?

No, it's not, but the source code should still be available from
some official master site.

If you know some master site for 2.x.x, tell us about it and the port
can be resurrected.
