Which is technically trivially done with:
    /usr/ports/sysutils/vobcopy
if:
   /usr/ports/multimedia/libdvdread
is compiled with:
   /usr/ports/multimedia/libdvdcss/
support...

... assuming it is legal where you live, or you own the copyright
of some CSS-scrambled content, of course. ;-)

But it won't give you an ISO yet; though backing
that stuff up with growisofs is easy enough.
