pkg_create can create packages from your installed ports (or packages),
it will not create a mega-package of all your system, if thats is what
you are looking for. Of course, you can instruct pkg_create to create
packages for *all* your installed programs.
Typical use is something like:
pkg_create -Rb foo-1.2.3_4
(get the exact package version for foo by running pkg_info -Ix foo)
The -R flag will cause packages to be created for all dependencies of
foo as well. If you wish to create packages for everything you got
installed, you may try something like the following simple script (run
as root to avoid weird permission errors in some cases):
for i in `pkg_info -Ea`; do
pkg_create -b "$i"
(no need for -R here, since you are doing all packages anyway)
Bear in mind some ports can not be packaged due to licensing issues and
some others may behave erratically (i.e. sysutils/screen).
