If you've built and installed bind97 already on one machine, you can
create a pkg tarball easily:

    # pkg_create -b bind97-

Assuming the machines are the same FreeBSD major version and have the
same CPU architecture specified in /etc/make.conf and that they have the
appropriate versions of all the dependencies already installed.

Or just use:

    # pkg_create -R -b bind97-

to create pkg tarballs of bind97 and everything it depends on.

If you haven't built and installed anything yet, try:

    # cd /usr/ports/dns/bind97
    # make package


    # make package-recursive

Generic package taballs should be available on the servers eventually --
keep checking in the 'Latest' directory
