A new point version of gdal has been released. Also I notice there are a number of python based utilities that do not install as part of the current FreeBSD packaging. For example gdal_polygonize.py

Updated to 3.5.2 in ports 9432fd8cbd99ba04e9cb0dfb014981e4b5568cdc.
You have to install graphics/py-gdal for those python utilities.
