Thank you for replying Ben. I am fully aware of the package and port
system of FreeBSD. The port tree is one of the reason for my switch
from Debian GNU/Linux to FreeBSD and that's why I'm building ports
instead of installing the packages.

Till now I have managed to build and install xorg, zsh, bash, xdm and
xsm. Currently I'm stuck in installing x11/gnome3 which depends on
graphics/graphviz which is giving compile error (same as
security/trousers). I have reported about it to the maintainer.

Perhaps I should start another thread for graphics/graphviz.
