Are these Emacs ports still useful?

While japanese/migemo-emacs23 (now japanese/migemo-emacs) builds
successfully, I am increasingly suspicious that it has passed its
usefulness.  For example, during the build there are messages about
obsolete and missing elisp functions.  Moreover, the port itself seems
broken.  Many of the variable definitions in
japanese/migemo-emacs/Makefile are overwritten by the master port.

/usr/ports/japanese % grep _DEPENDS migemo-emacs/Makefile

/usr/ports/japanese % make -C migemo-emacs -VBUILD_DEPENDS -VRUN_DEPENDS

I will mark it as deprecated and set an expiration date.  Please speak
up if you believe it is still useful!
