It is also trivial to download the most recent version from
squirrelmail.org and unzip it to a directory that apache serves.  most
of the configuration headache (of which there is very little) is in
changing httpd.conf if you use virtual directories or virtual servers,
and/or running the ./configure script that comes with squirrelmail... 
you will have to do those things whether you use a port or not.  I would
recommend getting the latest version anyway for security and features.

just another 2 cents
