The mail/py-spf port was several versions behind. I have contacted the maintainer (mnag@FreeBSD.org, message pasted below) but did not hear back from him/her. The version in the ports right now is 1.6, while 1.7 is from (2006-07-31 13:45) and the latest is 2.0.3 from (2007-01-15 11:49).
I therefore took the liberty of updating the port, and offer to become the maintainer of this port.

I was planning on adding a couple of spf related ports to the ports
collection, and saw you are maintaining the py-spf port. It uses a
rather old version though, the one by Terence Way. Development of
that module has continued in other hands now (Stuart Gatham has
taken over, together with Scott Kitterman).
Anyway, I am an active member of the SPF community, and was
wondering if you would mind handig over maintainership of the py-spf
port to me so i can update it as new version are released.
