Subject:   How to create custom meta-port ?
Message-ID:  <>

I am on FreeBSD 12-current amd64.

Since a package is not yet available for virtualbox under FreeBSD 12, I had=
 to build the emulators/virtualbox-ose port. I chose to build the port with=
 GCC5 and QT4 (both already installed via pkg).

What I would like to do is save time in future with a custom meta-package t=
hat lumps together the tarballs for virtualbox-ose, gcc5, and qt4. Effectiv=
ely, the installing the meta via 'pkg add' would have the same effect as 'p=
kg install virtualbox-ose gcc5 qt4'.

Is that possible ? Thanks for any information.
