I just submitted a PR asking to add the new port 'sysutils/ipdbtools'.

   https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=3D211744

I needed to change the name of the geoip tool, because GeoIP=C2=AE is a =
registered trademark of MaxMind, Inc., see www.maxmind.com. The name of =
the tool is now 'ipup' =3D abbreviated form of  IP  geo location table =
generation and look- UP , that is without the boring middle part :-D

Those, who used geoip already in some scripts, please excuse the =
inconvenience of needing to change the name.

With the great help of Julian, I was able to improve the man file and =
the latest version can be read online:

Best regards

Rolf
