Oh God, how did I miss that ?

cd /usr/ports/
/usr/ports # find . -iname '*blast*'

mp3blaster is there, alive and kicking : - )

I anyway built from sources and that worked equally well too.

I normally always put the asterisks when searching under ports. Perhaps 
I should create a shell wrapper for wild-carding find searches under 
/usr/ports automatically.

There is one thing that is missing from FreeBSD arsenal : if I find a 
port at freshports but not under /usr/ports (even after a 'portsnap 
update'), how to access (build) the port ? Do I just download sources 
and build them, or is there some better way ?

Thanks and Regards
