Yes, these are additional files to provide the above mentioned functions, 
since they are not available on FreeBSD out of the box.

You can just reuse these two files. I'm doing it myself in sysutils/filelight 
and it works without a glitch. Just add them to the files-directory and copy 
them to the desired location in the post-patch target. Don't forget to 
connect them to the build of your program (see the patches of filelight for 
an easy way to do so, without adding too many additional patches).

If you have any further problems with it, please provide some more information 
about what doesn't work in detail. :)
