I'm the maintainer of the port www/mod_authnz_external24. Disclaimer: 
I'm just a guy who needs this module since I use it for a long time. 
Once I discovered that the FreeBSD ports version is apache22-only, so I 
quicly made a port and asked one of the FreeBSD big guys to commit it. 
As a [temporary ?] solution I can easily rehost the tarball, I think 
this is what I should do for now (unfortunately, I was simple not aware 
about the fact that the port is marked unfetcheable may be I've even got 
the email about it, but for last year maintaining this ports meant 
receiving periodically some mail with false positive building errorso 
may be this is why I missed it). As for the port future... well, I'm 
concerned about it too, because I suppose I will continue to use it. So 
if anyone wants to take it over to maintain - I'm not insisting on my 
maintainership at all.
