Jesse Smith, an active PC-BSD user and creator of many PBIs, is working on a program that automates parts of the FreeBSD port to an 8.x PBI conversion process. If you would like to try his command line utility, check out his Make-A-PBI Sourceforge page. He’s open to feedback, bug reports, and patches–see the contact information at that website if you have any to submit. If there’s enough interest, he’ll submit the program to the FreeBSD ports collection.
