I don't think that was ever in pkgsrc, so I'm not sure how it could
be dropped from it.
Feel free to provide a package for it, preferably directly in pkgsrc-wip
[ http://pkgsrc-wip.sf.net/ ].

I updated that to use buildlink3 and some other nice features
of pkgsrc and imported it into pkgsrc-wip, since it only
created noise for me (on 1.6ZF/i386) with two random files I got
off the Internet.
