Distributions, by nature, shouldn't be on the disc... they are outdated =
the moment they are made into an ISO.

run these commands:

These are written assuming you are in as root.

# ftp ftp://ftp3.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/ports/ports.tar.gz
This is a 50MB file. It will take some time. I have found =
ftp3.freebsd.org to be the fastest server in the US.
# mkdir /usr/ports
# chown root:wheel /usr/ports
# tar -xzf ./ports.tar.gz  -C /usr/ports/

Capital C is required there... it will shift you to the folder you need.
You can now build your programs as you need to.=20
/usr/ports/shells/bash*

This is also the most current version of the ports since you are getting =
it straight off the server.
