This is a request for the recently removed archivers/bzip port.
I have the original source, and until, or unless archivers/bzip2
offers the same options, I'd like to keep this port available.
It also requires typing one less character to invoke it, than
bzip2 does. ;)
I'd also like to see if it might [ever] be possible to merge
this with bzip2.
Patch to follow (as a reply) within a few minutes.
Use the patch I will post as a reply to this pr(1).
How-To-Repeat: Any attempt to build, will fail.

Please find the complete source tree attached as bzip.shar
as suggested in the Porters Handbook.
note: the shar file contains a new MASTER_SITE. Lack of distfile which was the original reason the port was removed.
ugh, I was close to committing this when I noticed patch-aa, patch-ab, patch-ac. I renamed patch-aa and patch-ab, then discovered patch-ac patches the exact same file as former patch-ab.
Very ugly. I will have to combine patch-ab and patch-ac now.
A commit references this bug:

New revision: 357450
Resurrect archivers/bzip and assign maintainer
This port was removed due not having a publically available distfile.
That has been fixed per the PR with maintainership assigned to submitter.
* The patch-aa was renamed
* The patch-ab and patch-ac touched the same file; they were combined
* DragonFly support was added (hence the portrevision bump)
* GPLv2 license was annotated
* 80-column formatting was respected
* PLIST sorted
