I suggest you reconsider use of the ports system, as that is the canonical
way to create installer packages on FreeBSD. You can create a port privately
- -- it doesn't have to be submitted to the FreeBSD ports system. Just follow
the instructions in the Porter's Handbook for creating the port -- so long
as it has it's own little sub directory to contain the Makefile, pkg-descr
and so forth, it can be kept virtually anywhere in your filesystem. It will
pick up dependencies from the standard ports tree quite happily.
