Update to 1.4.4
Maintainer informed via mail
I'm pretty sure 1.6 will be the next version in ports.
that being said, if acm@ doesn't respond in a timely fashion (he's been MIA) and 1.6 is still far out (although I don't think it is) then maybe I can import this as it's not complex.

Closed is better?
no, let's just wait and see.
takefu, lazarus is at release candidate 2 right now. Do have have any interest in providing a patch to update lazarus to that version? (or newer if available)
I'm pretty busy these days, but if you do the main effort of updating it, I can probably review and commit it.

We are ready to be able to build the release candidate 2.
To proceed with the formal release,
There is also prepared to patch submission.
all the patches have relative paths like "./makefile" so they are ambiguous. Normally you would generate a patch from the ports root or at least the category root.
The changes themselves look ok except for removing the "created by" line in the first makefile. Those are permanent.
hmm, getting a failure on lcl-qt4 in synth:
Target OS: DragonFly for x86-64
qt45.pas(654,84) Error: Identifier not found "Qt4PasLib"
qt45.pas(654,94) Error: Illegal expression
qt45.pas(655,76) Error: Identifier not found "Qt4PasLib"
qt45.pas(655,86) Error: Illegal expression
qt45.pas(656,106) Error: Identifier not found "Qt4PasLib"
Unclear if it's DF-specific or not yet. (my guess is not).
It appears to be dragonfly-specific issue, there's a missing definition of DF.
