Hi, Michael,

Thank you for your report.  This would have been better sent to the
freebsd-ports@ list, but no matter.

There is already a PR with patches to update awscli and dependencies:

As far as I can see, that's just waiting on maintainer feedback -- if
the maintainer doesn't respond, it will need about another week before
it times out and can be committed.

However, if you'ld like to apply the patches to your ports tree by hand
and add a note to the PR about the success or not of trying that, it
would be appreciated.

Note: the patches in the PR are in git-diff format, so to apply them to
a ports tree checked out via subversion or svnlite or portupdate you
would need to do something like (untested):

   # cd /usr/ports
   # patch -p1 awscli.patch
   # patch -p1 py-botocore.patch
