after installing puppet-devel or version 0.24.5 from ports, I cannot start it issuing /usr/local/etc/rc.d/puppetmasterd start. it's saying that /var/puppet cannot be found
install puppet-devel from ports, enable puppetmasterd in /etc/rc.conf adding puppetmasterd_enable="YES". after that you need create site manifest file or site.pp in /usr/local/etc/puppet/manifests. content whould be anything, but in my situation it's:

file { "/etc/passwd" :
        owner => "root",
        mode => 644,

now you can start puppetmasterd using /usr/local/etc/rc.d/puppetmasterd start
just create /var/puppet. but i think it would be better create it in postinst script.
