Just a warning though, what is "fetched" in ports is actually in the format of what's in HEAD (read: not in the format of what gets installed).

For example, there are things that end up in /usr/share/bsdconfig that aren't in the "bsdconfig/share/" source directory (e.g., all the stuff under /usr/share/bsdconfig/networking is under the source directory "bsdconfig/networking/share"). This may be counter-intuitive from an "exploratory" view if looking at the source directory (what's fetched by ports).

And since the port Makefile will prevent you from turning that fetch'ed source directory into an installed software (putting things where they end up), it might be easier to grab this pre-built package that I stashed...


Because then you can say "pkg_add" and everything will be in the right place (/usr/share/bsdconfig/ will be flush with everything and you won't have to hunt-and-peck through the source with a "maintainers" view).
