The version in ports is two patch versions behind and missing out on a handful of bug fixes.

Can you provide a patch ?
(In reply to Kurt Jaeger from comment #1)
I could try. I haven't modified ports for FreeBSD before, so I'd have to go through the various docs. Also not sure how I'd go about testing my changes. So I'm willing, but it might take some time.
