Hello and thanks for your answer.
I saw that description, but I really couldn't understand if the port 
system will issue a "git clone" or still expect the tarball somewhere.

In any case, as Thierry pointed out (thanks!), the tarball is there, so 
this is over.

I submitted a PR for the new port.

  bye & Thanks
