Have you made any attempt to build i3-4.3 and i3-4.4 yourself? 
The file DEPENDS in i3 release >= 4.3  lists:

pango       │ 1.30.0 | 1.30.0 │ http://www.pango.org/                
cairo       │ 1.12.2 │ 1.12.2 │ http://cairographics.org/

There is only pango 1.28.4 and cairo 1.10.2 in ports.

So, there is obviously a good reason why the port hasn't been updated
