Hehe, to be honest I kind of expected this kind of reply from someone. 
Some time ago I attempted something like a port, however my knowlege at 
that time was not sufficient to get it running. Currently I'm running an 
OS X system as my default platform (since FreeBSD still lacked/lacks 
decent sleep/hybernation support; and for that seriously applies I do 
not have the knowlege to fix it) so maintaining a port is going to be 
difficult. However maybe I'll try again just to prove myself I can 
create a port.

So in short: When I was saying "it's a shame.." I was also refering to 
myself indeed ...
