Using poudriere to build your own repo is *very* easy and lets you build 
only the packages you need (so is quicker than waiting the four-ish days 
that the main repository takes to build everything), with the options 
you want.

It will probably take a day or two at most, depending on how many 
packages you need, which has to be better than "not working for weeks".
