It is a warning that building this port doesn't currently work. The
build cluster probably detected this, so it was marked broken. It's up
to the port maintainer or any other interested person to fix it.

- read the FreeBSD Porter's Handbook
- remove the BROKEN line from the port's makefile
- try to build it and see where it breaks
- make it work again.
- submit a PR with the changes
