i have a few questions about the freebsd ports collection:

i couldn't find source code linked from the fbsd site for irc, for example.  do 
you know where i can find it, and how can i be sure that what i find will 
compile on freebsd?  i'm relatively new to compiling software and i'm wondering 
if each program has its own set of rules, or are there some generic lessons 
about compiling that might serve me well?

also, if you have any suggestions about some simple programs which i could 
modify and recompile on freebsd i'd be grateful.

thanks in advance,
