How long did you wait? Unlike most ports, this one fetches from a git repository. There will be no progress bar or any other output while the download happens. In the current version, it fetches 625MB of data. That may take some time if your network is slow. My network is fairly fast so it only took a minute.

Probably. I haven't touched these ports in awhile. There is another maintainer but he hasn't been active lately either. Would you file a ticket in our issue tracker requesting this update? Or if you're feeling adventurous you can try to do the update yourself and submit a pull request to us.
