I took a bit to find it, so here's the link 
https://github.com/macports/macports-contrib/tree/master/portfile-gen.

I learned to write a portfile following some article in the wild, then I went 
through the whole guide, landed eventually in the mailing list.

While portfile-gen might help (homebrew has a similar feature), an *overview* 
of how to write a portfile is much needed.
