svn diff to fix ftp/fmirror

I see this port is slated for deletion. I have the source,
and use the port. So why not host it, along with the other
ports I already host.

Following is a session showing this port is available again:

# make fetch
===>   fmirror-0.8.4_4 depends on file: /usr/local/sbin/pkg - found
=> fmirror-0.8.4.tar.gz doesn't seem to exist in /usr/ports/distfiles/.
=> Attempting to fetch http://BSDforge.com/projects/source/ftp/fmirror/fmirror-0.8.4.tar.gz
fmirror-0.8.4.tar.gz                          100% of   58 kB  306 MBps 00m00s
===> Fetching all distfiles required by fmirror-0.8.4_4 for building

s# make -DBATCH extract
===>   fmirror-0.8.4_4 depends on file: /usr/local/sbin/pkg - found
===> Fetching all distfiles required by fmirror-0.8.4_4 for building
===>  Extracting for fmirror-0.8.4_4
=> SHA256 Checksum OK for fmirror-0.8.4.tar.gz.

While here, as long as I'm hosting the source,
add myself as MAINTAINER.

That's it!

Please find attached, the svn diff that fixes this port.

Thanks!

Committed as ports r383909 along with some other changes, thanks.  Let's not silently steal maintainership; instead, you should probably write an email to current maintainer and politely ask if he or she is still interested in maintaining the port, and very likely they'd happily give it away.

Right. Not my intention (to steal maintainership).
Was a busy day, and I'm afraid I was a bit careless.
I also didn't provide the WWW I claimed to have,
in some of the ports, as you also noted. (fixed)

Lesson learned, and thank you, Alexey Dokuchaev,
for all the work you put into these!
