License: not specified in port
Description:
biffer replaces and enhances the normal result of "biff(1)". It can forward notifications between machines and userids (even if the mail recipient is not currently signed on), ignore messages that match user-specified patterns in mail headers, do text or X notifications, and also run an arbitrary program. Needs a slight modification to the stock comsat, included here as biffer_comsat. Written at the University of Waterloo circa 1988, and in use since then with some modifications.

For ports maintained by ports@FreeBSD.org, remove names and/or
e-mail addresses from the pkg-descr file that could reasonably
be mistaken for maintainer contact information in order to avoid
confusion on the part of users looking for support. As a pleasant
side effect this also avoids confusion and/or frustration for people
who are no longer maintaining those ports.
