Hi, Kevin. Thank you. I'm already maintain several ports.
There are some difficulties in porting this software for me:

1. It's graphical gnome-based software. I have no experience in gnome ports.
This is not the biggest problem though.

2. It's written in D.
Yes, I wrote 'D'. It wants devel/dub and one of the D compilers
already available in ports tree: lang/ldc or lang/dmd2.
lang/dmd2 is broken under FreeBSD 12 due to inability to work with ino64.
lang/ldc doesn't compile under FreeBSD 12:
[131/249] cd /usr/ports/lang/ldc/work/ldc-1.7.0-src/runtime/profile-rt/d
&& /usr/ports/lang/ldc/work/ldc-1.7.0-src/bin/ldc2 -c --output-o -w
-O3 -release -relocation-model=pic
-od=/usr/ports/lang/ldc/work/ldc-1.7.0-src/runtime/objects -op
FAILED: runtime/objects/ldc/profile.o
cd /usr/ports/lang/ldc/work/ldc-1.7.0-src/runtime/profile-rt/d &&

&& /usr/ports/lang/ldc/work/ldc-1.7.0-src/bin/ldc2 -c --output-o
-enable-dynamic-compile -w -O3 -release
-od=/usr/ports/lang/ldc/work/ldc-1.7.0-src/runtime/objects -op

cd /usr/ports/lang/ldc/work/ldc-1.7.0-src/runtime/jit-rt/d &&

-enable-dynamic-compile -w -O3 -release
-od=/usr/ports/lang/ldc/work/ldc-1.7.0-src/runtime/objects -op
ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed.

3. Also it wants gtkd. I'm not sure it's already ported to FreeBSD.

So, I made a try, but couldn't even start.
