Indeed, the MailScanner port is getting a little out of date again. Yes 
it should be periodically updated, but unfortunately the maintainer of 
the MailScanner port is AWOL and doesn't respond to emails, meaning that 
the MailScanner port is currently not being maintained.

Maintaining FreeBSD ports requires a basic working knowledge of the 
ports system and the program in question (MailScanner in this case), and 
of course, the free time necessary to update and check the port works 
before submitting a patch to the committers. Sadly, as of yet, no one 
with the free time/skills has volunteered to help with this.
