I was saying that no users are interested in these ports in MacPorts, not
that no user are interested in these software on macOS. Users are free to
install nrpe / ncsa using brew or manually, and that doesn't change the
fact that nobody expressed interest about nrpe / ncsa in MacPorts. I see no
point to keep broken and outdated ports in such a case.
