The instructions you need to give him are simply
cd /usr/ports/print/pdflib && make install clean

But if you want to hand him a package, do instead
cd /usr/ports/print/pdflib && make package clean
and in the directory /usr/ports/print/pdflib will be a package 

(I wasn't quite sure what you were asking, and no-one else seemed to 
have replied.  I hope this helps.)
