how to make a port of ex-FreeBSD code...

I'm going to be removing bdes (and possibly enigma) from FreeBSD and
making a port of it...

What is the best way to do this?

Should I fetch this from git/svn?  Make a new archive of this?  But if
I create a new archive, how to distribut it (keeping it in my home dir
is not an option, as I don't plan on maintaining it)?

Is there an example of other code that was retired to the ports tree?
