I'm aware of "cask" being a feature of Homebrew. If that's what you're

We will definitely never offer a user-facing feature for building the HEAD 
version of a port's code. We want to provide some level of assurance that a 
port will build, does not contain malware, provides a particular library 
version, etc.; we cannot provide those assurances if the user can request to 
build a version of the code that we've never tested.

I see a submission for rb-vagrant; is that the same thing?

this consists of elasticsearch, logstash and kibana.

elasticsearch is in MacPorts.

The submissions of logstash and kibana are here:
