Hi Lisandro,

two things:

1) Please don't top-post. This means that when you hit reply, scroll
down to the *bottom* to post your response. The reason for this is so
that anyone coming along who might be able to help you will be able to
read the entire email conversation in the order it was given. It helps
other people help you! :)


2) If you truly believe the port is broken, you have several options:
    a) write to the port maintainer, if it has one, describing your
issue.
    b) fix the issue and write to the port maintainer with the patch.
    c) If the port has no maintainer, write to the freebsd-ports mailing
list and see if you can get any assistance there. PLEASE note that
there, as here, you'll encounter volunteers. So if no one answers, then
your only real option is to sit down and work on the port yourself.


James
