Start by reading the Porter's Handbook --

This will tell you how to create the port directory with it's
Makefile, pkg-descr and pkg-plist (and possibly other) files.

Once you've developed a port skeleton that works correctly and that
portlint(1) is happy with, you can submit it via send-pr(1) -- see
section 2.6 of the Porter's Handbook for details.  It's a good thing
to volunteer to be the port's Maintainer as well as just submitting

If you're thinking of working on ports, try subscribing to the
freebsd-ports at freebsd.org and maybe freebsd-ports-bugs at freebsd.org
mailing lists for a bit to get an idea of what's involved.
