openntpd continued to evolve until it no longer builds on DragonFly,
even with patches.  Somebody that cares can figure out the best way to
support it and send me patches (or better yet, send OpenBSD patches).  I
removed the dport after not being able to build the latest version.

Sure it can be true.  Obviously it's not in base, so dports is the best
hope.  If there are no ports available then it's true. Ports can be
fixed (even if it means adding functionality to DragonFly).
