FreeBSD Port: Issue when ./configure is run

I checked out the latest valgrind, but when I run ./configure, it throws me this:

checking for a supported OS... no (freebsd7.1)
configure: error: Valgrind is operating system specific. Sorry.

Which version does the latest valgrind need?

There's also devel/valgrind-devel ;-) But it has the same ONLY_FOR_ARCHS line. Unfortunately both are unmaintained, but perhaps whoever maintained these ports when that line appeared might know more. If I'm not mistaken the most recent version of Valgrind has Linux mips64 support, but FreeBSD
mips64 support is probably experimental at best.


I'm not completely useless, I can be used as a bad example.
