Hello guys,


What is the right way of building packages for non-ports applications?

AFAIK 'make package' and ' pkg_create -b name' are based on ports
installed packages.

Is there any way of using same commands or additional scripts to achieve
similar results?

If it matters I'm trying to create packages from net-snmp-5.4.1 sources
(needed for 64-bits counters feature) since ports version is based on

Suggestions are welcome.
