"port search bastille" would be better, but that too shows no  
Bastille port.

It looks like Bastille Linux has just changed names to Bastille Unix,  
since a) they temporarily lost their domain name to a squatter, and  
b) Bastille Linux has worked on HP-UX and Mac OS X for years.

So, I imagine it should be possible to create a portfile for Bastille  
Unix. Someone who cares about and knows the software should feel free  
to do so. Until such a person is found, a ticket could be filed for  
this request.
