I strongly suggest that you test the application on some
testhost before upgrading any production server. Because:

1) I did not do any run-tests and I'm sceptic that it will work
   out of the box
2) It builds with some /var/lib pathes which still to be changed
   to proper pathes like /var/db or /var/spool or something.
3) A rc.d script is not yet provided.

If you can update the problem report with your tests, that would
be very helpful.

Thanks for that pointer! So we need to mark the port as limited to
10.2 and newer.

Wonderful. Please report back on the run-tests!
