Yep, it's a FreeBSD port.  While I run both free and open bsd, I've found
that there are a few things better installed from original source. 
Mailman is one of them.  The only thing that the port really gives is
the uname/group consistent with fbsd standards. You can easily pull that
out of the makefile.

(ISTR that the tcl port lags the actual release a bit, too. Can't think
of the others off hand.)
