Sorry for offtopic, but for Ivan to know three things:
1) building software (and/or packaging it using PBI/tbz) is WAY more
complicated then just downloading distfiles from some mirror.
2) PC-BSD is BASED on but not EQUAL to FreeBSD and has it's own
mailing lists which can easily be found here -
http://lists.pcbsd.org/mailman/listinfo . Please do not think i'm
trying to be rude or get rid of new member, but sometimes one needs to
know the better way to find necessary information.
3) PC-BSD is based on FreeBSD since this deep knowledge of it
basically (i suppose) should begin with FreeBSD's Handbook which
carefully explains what ports are and how to use them. This page is a
good start (it's in Russian ;) )
-http://www.freebsd.org/doc/ru_RU.KOI8-R/books/handbook/ . Ports
specific information can be easily found here -
