The porting effort for MaraDNS v2 was practically done, but the port
maintainer had been busy at the time porting virtualbox (indeed an
important effort) so it never got committed.

You can find the last set of patches at
http://home.bluelife.at/patches/maradns-2.0.02.diff (port maintainer's
private repository), maybe it can help you. Some of those changes I
did myself, so feel free to ask if you need help.

Additionally, there was some discussion on this list about FreeBSD
support which resulted in commits to MaraDNS source, see
