True.  I had that awful moment of realization that there isn't a ports
category called 'filters' pretty much just as soon as I pressed 'send'.

This will be a file the port expects to find under ${WRKDIR} in order to
apply a SHEBANG fix to it.  Looks like that file no-longer exists in the
sources of the latest version of recoll, so you can just edit the
SHEBANG_FILES setting in the ports Makefile to work around the problem.
If that file is now auto-generated, you'll need to check that it doesn't
need the same sort of fix once it has been generated.  Otherwise, if the
file has simply been removed from the port entirely you'll need to
adjust the pkg-plist.

This doesn't look like an entirely simple update: might not be such a
good 'my first port' candidate...
