In the past we've worked around this by using a 0.0.DATE format, so
that as soon as upstream releases a proper version number, as long as
it is numerically greater than 0.0.20200312 or whatever then it will
work fine.

For example:

  audio/alacconvert/Makefile:PKGNAME=     alacconvert-0.0.20111026
  audio/libalac/Makefile:PKGNAME= libalac-0.0.20111026
  textproc/igor/Makefile:PKGNAME= igor-0.0.20140517
