If you must have a web based version, another option is DIY roll your
own ports index based on your own local ports tree. At least you can
set it up how you want.

a simple quick-together script running on my computer:
https://dx.burplex.com/FreeBSD-ports/index.php

there's a github link at the bottom of the page you can hack on if you wanna.

cool thing is you can easily cross-reference all the corresponding
gnats PR files in your mailbox to the generated port page, i'll add
that bit tomorrow.
