There is a protopackage floating around somewhere.  I looked into
building a package a while back; I gave up because the necessary
integration of enigmail with Thunderbird source was beyond my
understanding of pkgsrc magic.  I've learned more since then, but I'm
not likely to tackle it since I don't use Thunderbird; I haven't even
found the cycles to finish repackaging Claws-Mail, which I do use.
