Have a look at the Porter's Handbook, esp. the "quick porting" section:


Then, choose one from the 10500+ examples in /usr/ports ;-) If you
want to create a port for a Gnome application, choose a Gnome port
(USE_GNOME=bla blurb), same applies for KDE applications or software that
uses GNU configure (GNU_CONFIGURE=YES), ...

Now skeletonize a copy of your example and fill in your own flesh.

Don't forget to run "portlint -N" (ports/devel/portlint) before
submitting your PR.

If you encounter any problems, don't hesitate to ask in this mailing
