generally speaking, ports@ group can help with minor things, and I have 
found that sometimes the more complex, the bigger challenge, the more 
help you will get.

rarely, if ever have I found it necessary to hire someone to do the 
actual porting for me, but if its a business case, and worth it, you 
might mention it in ports@ (no, i am not offering..)  .  But you might 
consider it.
(FreeBSD never needed to set up a 'bounty' system for people wanting to  
help pay for a port, have they?  I have seen this done on other open 
source projects, mostly to add features and re-arrange priorities, based 
on ca$h used as a voting system )
