The original port maintainer has been unresponsive and I have tried to contact the person that was assigned this from FreeBSD and he has also been unresponsive. This port as it stands is slated to be deleted from the ports tree at the end of this month. I understand that there is a 3 month timeout on port maintainers, but with it being slated for removal from the ports tree and the unresponsiveness from the original maintainer if someone could take a look at this and move it along in the process or provide me the feedback that I need to get this moving forward. I would also like to note that there are several other PRs that are awaiting feedback from the original maintainer that are older than the one I submitted.

Hi Matthew,

Are you interested in become the maintainer for postgis?
I think this can be arranged.

Also could you please update your PR 174620 with a patch taken in the opposite order
diff -u $orig $new (instead $new $orig)
else it is hard handwork to apply your patch.
