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.
