Have a look at /usr/ports/games/HeroesOfMightAndMagic for an example.

Additionally, my experience with CivCTP was to ignore the CD's install script 
and instead copy the files manually.  After installation, flag the executable 
as coming from a Linux system using

    % brandelf -t Linux civctp

Of course, this assumes that Linux emulation is enabled and that you have all 
the dependencies installed.  Note that I had some issues running this game as 
an unpriviledged user but haven't bothered to figure out why.
