math/open-axiom gone?

after updating my ports tree, I've found out that math/open-axiom
has been deleted! After math/fricas unusable with sbcl-1.3.x for
many months and now gone too, I'm left with NO alternatives for
that kind of software here.

Fortunately, I still have a working package of open-axiom on my machine,
running with SBCL 1.3.1 right now:

$ pkg version -v | grep open-axiom
open-axiom-1.4.2_3                 ?   orphaned: math/open-axiom

Do you recommend to switch to Debian GNU/Linux, where those packages
are still actively maintained, or is there a chance in hell to see
those ports reappear in the near future on FreeBSD?
