Just a warning though, what is "fetched" in ports is actually in the format=
 of what's in HEAD (read: not in the format of what gets installed).

For example, there are things that end up in /usr/share/bsdconfig that aren=
't in the "bsdconfig/share/" source directory (e.g., all the stuff under /u=
sr/share/bsdconfig/networking is under the source directory "bsdconfig/netw=
orking/share"). This may be counter-intuitive from an "exploratory" view if=
 looking at the source directory (what's fetched by ports).

And since the port Makefile will prevent you from turning that fetch'ed sou=
rce directory into an installed software (putting things where they end up)=
, it might be easier to grab this pre-built package that I stashed...

Because then you can say "pkg_add" and everything will be in the right plac=
e (/usr/share/bsdconfig/ will be flush with everything and you won't have t=
o hunt-and-peck through the source with a "maintainers" view).
