Perhaps you haven't already heard of HaikuPorts, it's a site that was set up
to help aid in organizing porting effort, and to reduce the duplication of

We've go both users and developer's mailing lists there along with our own
trac with the port-log plug which makes it easy to keep track of a ports
progress.  If you (or anyone else reading this) would like to help out, head
on over and sign up.

Taking a quick look on gentoo portage, I see that fox toolkit may or may not
have dependencies on X11 libs, so that may be a roadblock, but that's been
worked around in other ports.  Most of the other listed dependencies don't
look too bad though.
