They are all abandoned ports anyway. I removed them in
but there is a debate about whether they shuld have stayed.
SO firstly: does anyone use any of the above ports that haven't
been maintained in > 10 years, don't hva homepage, don't have
a maintainer, and upsstream says not to use them?
If so, we might bring them back with the libssl dependency fixed.
