You have four options:

1) Don't use the port

2) If you wish to use the port and potentially expose yourself to the
vulnerabilities discussed in those advisories, comment ouf the
FORBIDDEN line in the compat3x port

3) Convince the vendor to make a new version of frontpage that doesn't
depend on the FreeBSD 3.x libraries

4) Fix the security vulnerabilities in the unmaintained FreeBSD 3.x
code and submit your changes.
