Backport patch from upstream trunk for 'hangs forever' issue
On http://sourceforge.net/p/sshpass/bugs/12/ the issue is explained:
Doing a "sshpass -p password ssh vmfreebsd10-32 -l account ls" hangs
forever. The reason is that in this combination the prompt for the
password looks like this: "Password for account@vmfreebsd10-32:" and
sshpass checks the password against the string "assword:", so there
is no match.
This is fixed upstream in trunk, but no release has been created yet.
Import the patch into the ports tree until the next release.

Add new port (security/sshpass)
Sshpass is a tool for non-interactively performing password authentication
with SSH's so called "interactive keyboard password authentication".
Most user should use SSH's more secure public key authentication instead.
