Here's a small hint.  The phpMyAdmin port downloads and installs a tarball
from the net.  It doesn't compile anything.  It's essentially the same
process as installing one of the FreeBSD packages.  Except, of course, you
get access to all of the various knobs and twiddles that let you make it
work exactly the way you want.
