FreeBSD Port: mgetty-1.1.31

I added the package mgetty-1.1.31 to my FreeBSD 5.2.1 and it successfully 
installed but did not create the required configuration files, mainly 
/usr/local/etc/mgetty+sendfax/mgetty.config and voice.conf.

I downloaded some recent source and looked at the Makefile and there is an 
integrated system to set up default policies and dynamically generate the 
aforementioned default conf files at the time the package is built.  I 
would rather not rebuild the whole package.

FYI, some of the more esoteric config files (dialin.config, faxrun1.config, 
faxspool.rules, login.config, faxheader) did install in 

Why didn't the main config files install with the pkg_add?  What is the 
best way to get them and finish setting this up (like, what else am I missing)?
