I'm not sure how building PBI files is going to help with your 135G of
files from Russia that won't seem to fit on your drive, however there is
some pbi software in ports for you to check out..


I've experimented a bit with the software on FreeBSD 10.0-CURRENT and
PC-BSD 9 machine - but I'm not an authority on the subject ;-) ... pbi
could prove to be a good way to test out stuff that needs newer glib, gtk,
etc, to avoid royally dorking up your system, like for example GIMP
development sources from cvs, as an alternative to building in a jail and
running the display through an X 'remote' connection.

Here's a wiki page i found to be a good reference.
