I'd rather try to talk you into helping out on our existing PRs :-)

Alternatively, if having a completely stable ports tree is a showstopper
for you, pkgsrc is supposed to run on FreeBSD.  But as someone else has
noted, you're basically going to be doing a 100% reinstall to do that.

In general I think we do a pretty good job on keeping the 'critical'
ports in good shape (modulo freezes).
