Well, it just means that the simple modifications that were suggested  
as a possible fix for you are insufficient for what you want it to do.

You can either:
1. Learn how to add the functionality you want to the port (and  
hopefully contribute it back)
2. File a bug requesting the additional functionality you want (and  
when the volunteer who maintains the port gets some time, he/she  
might add it for you).

If something is broken, please file a bug report (and assign it to  
the port's maintainer).

No one is getting paid to make this stuff work for you (we're all  
volunteers), and we haven't gotten an automated build system set up  
(yet) to help us catch more errors - so there are bound to be a few  
ports that have problems now and then.
