It seems to be because many other things depend on Netscape
(or the corresponding HTML renderer or who knows what); from
the port's description:
Netscape Portable Runtime (NSPR) provides a
platform-neutral API for system level and
libc like functions. The API is used in the
Mozilla client, many of Netscape/AOL/iPlanet's
and other software offerings.
So why port software complicatedly to FreeBSD when all
the OS-specific stuff can be abstracted by another port? :-)
