There is no Maple port, Maple must be installed from a CD with a valid license key. But there is a section in the Handbook which describes how to get Maple running on FreeBSD. Only, it has become harder with the newer versions of Maple. :-) I think I would rather rewrite the current section than patch it. Anyway thanks for the notes.
