You could ask the maintainer to restore the port.  Would have been
simpler if you had spoken up during the three months grace period,

When I stopped running xlogout maybe a decade ago, it felt like I
was the last person on earth still using it.  By 2015, I didn't
expect anybody to be even aware of its existence any longer.

Something like xlogout can't be more than a few lines in Tcl/Tk,
Perl/Tk, or the like.
