Revives the port that used to be at
Comment 1 Daniel Engberg 2021-04-05 18:13:38 UTC

A few things that needs to be adressed:

See "Table 5.2. Package Naming Examples" in Porters Handbook

36.04 seems to be the current version (3.0.0 is very out of date)

http://mirror.its.dal.ca/freebsd/distfiles/ is not a proper MASTER_SITES

MAINTAINER needs to be a person, importing unmaintained ports is in general a no go.

LICENSE_FILE definition is missing

CFLAGS can most likely be replaced by USES= localbase

pkg-message appears to be about of date? Website last updated in 2002

pkg-descr is out of date, site redirects to https://www.gryphel.com/c/minivmac/

Best regards,

pkg-message appears to be about of date should be pkg-message appears to be out of date

I apologise about the typo
Comment 3 probono 2021-04-05 19:20:39 UTC
Thanks for reviewing this. I know there are newer versions but my intention was just to restore the port that had been in Ports previously.

Hm, might be worth getting the most recent version in since we're working on it here.
Comment 5 Daniel Engberg 2021-04-05 21:48:46 UTC
We do however in general want to keep supported and up to date versions by upstream and in repo. As long as its not up to date it shouldn't be imported back as that were the reason for it being removed in the first place (not compiling most likely a result of being not up to date and/or unmaintained)
