It's a volunteer effort.  However, it's generally pretty good at being
up-to-date.  In this case, for example, the ports system has the
latest official release in the "samba" port, and the most recent
development release in the "samba-devel" port.  The samba-devel port
has often taken a couple of weeks to bring in the latest version, but
that doesn't seem unreasonable.

For the most obvious reason:  some people still need it.
