[Postbank antispam: Marketing mail detected] adding packages during jails creation

Dear ivailo,

Thanks for your reply.

Yes I already do that. I nullfs mount the hosts's /usr/ports to all the 
jails & make necessary changes in make.conf in the jails

Currently When I create a jail, I need to manually install some 
packages. (using make config , make install ...)

My question is how can I automate installation of ports, instead of me 
manually installing these packages on every Jail?
