Thanks. I submitted ports/186533 just now. I hope the discussion will 
continue over there. Given that you're one of the guys with the

look into that PR and (if it seems acceptable) commits that patch? Just 
works™ from here on?

While I offered to adopt the port in the PR, the answer to that one is 
I'm running a FreeBSD machine for less than 24h so far (if we ignore 
playing with it > 6-8 years ago) and I'm not sure if I should change a 
maintainer field _just yet_.. ;)
