No, but I've installed a *ton* of apps from ports, and I'm a port 
maintainer.  I strongly suggest you use the ports system.  All the 
compatibility and porting issues are already taken care of for you.

Just delete what you downloaded, cd to /usr/ports/benchmark/netperf/ and 
type "make install clean" at the commandline, and netperf will install just 
fine, I'm sure.  If you want to know if there are any available options, 
read the Makefile in the netperf directory.

Why reinvent the wheel?
