Well, since the OP just wants a DVD version, and not specifically a
version that's too big to fit on a CD, why not just create a DVD iso
that contains just enough to install?
Personally, I wonder why there isn't a ISO image that'll install
FreeBSD somewhat in a Gentoo concept, format the disk(s), download the
source, csup and install from the source(good for someone wanting to
follow -STABLE instead of -RELEASE), install and csup the ports tree,
and good to go.
