the distribution file to fetch correctly from GitHub. The developer calls
the current version 3.0.1.1, but it is just a tag an not a release. The
latest github release is 2.0.1 with several tags that are named "Release"
on GitHub, so it takes ugly, ugly hacks to make it fetch. (Or, more likely,
I just don't understand manipulating things on github as it didn't exist
last time I wrote a port about a decade ago.)

I'll continue working on it, but I 'm pretty confident that I can get it to
work and pass muster of a committer.

N.B. If you have the old distfile, it is still fine. Just edit Makefile to
remove the BROKEN line and it will build. If you don't have the distfile,
you will need to get it from someone else who still has it. (I can make it
available, if anyone needs it.)
