Yes, as 0.3.2.x is EOL'd tomorrow IIRC

Yes, I believe there is.
The is a few things to note:
* -stable packages are provided when updated. Although myself and Vigdis
have discussed doing something about this in the past...
* When a port version is deprecated, update the port yourself. Updating
to 0.3.4.x is simple enough... and I've been running for a while on a
bunch of servers. I think it just needed the version changed... check
openbsd doc to build.
* I did sent Pascal@ a diff for 0.3.4.8, which was pretty simple, but I
don't think the ports been updated.
