    I think what he means is a "/usr/ports" port. It's a lot like apt-get...you cd /usr/ports/net/bender and then type make. It will search and download the required files to make work (filling in dependancies), then apply any patches needed to compile on the target system, configure and make everything. Type "make install" and it fakes an installation to check for problems, then puts everything where it needs to be for you.

    Since this stuff seems to be all perl or at least compilable on OpenBSD, maybe some daemonhead will take the time to work out a port that can be used in all the BSD's.
