 I've attached a revised portfile with these changes:

  * use valid maintainer (nomaintainer)
  * add required long_description variable
  * remove extract.suffix and master_sites lines because their values were
 the defaults
  * remove md5 checksum which I consider obsolete
  * add "supported_archs noarch" since this port installs no architecture-
 specific files
  * use consistent formatting

 Remember that cpan2port is not a foolproof one-step make-a-perfect-port
 tool. It's merely a first step you can use to get a rough beginning of a
 portfile, and still requires you to understand and employ portfile writing
 best practices.

 I am not committing this yet, because p5-libwww-perl currently provides
 this module. The effort to upgrade p5-libwww-perl to the new version that
 comes as separate ports including p5-http-date is covered by #28865.
