Jesse Smith has uploaded a new version of Make-A-PBI. This version, 1.0, has some important improvements. Make-A-PBI can now attempt to make a PBI module without building/installing the associated port. This means that Make-A-PBI can run in seconds, rather than over several minutes/hours, and the program no longer needs to be run as root.
The building/installing options are still available for people who want to make sure their modules will build properly, but for making quick-n-dirty modules, run this command:
pbimaker -8 -s /usr/ports/category/portname
Which will make a PBI (version 8) port. You can make version 9 modules with this command:
pbimaker -9 -s /usr/ports/cateogry/portname
Often port icons are hard to find due to naming conventions; you can force the program to use a specific icon name with:
pbimaker -8 -s -b /path/to/default/icon /usr/ports/category/portname
