It was mildly challenging to develop the port, because the original distribution doesn't use a simple configure/compile/install sequence. I'm in contact with the original developer, and I have his blessing to manage the MacPorts releases.

I have provided feedback in the ticket now. Writing to this list is the correct procedure if tickets are not acted upon in a timely manner. And tickets for new ports, especially complicated ones like this one, take time to review, so many who scan the tickets may skip over them. If that happens, please poke us here until we react. :)
