Y'know--I *had* searched the ports tree. I found one package, but it 
wasn't anywhere near 'ready' for primetime.


 From the homepage  "A simple set of tools to help you author a DVD. The 
idea is to be able to create menus, buttons, chapters, etc, but for now 
you can just take an mpeg stream (as created by mplex -f 8 from 
mjpegtools 1.6.0) and write it to DVD."

I figured maybe I was missing something, so I figured I'd ask.

Ah, I haven't as of yet.
