Just like any other port you install.  you can either chroot into your
diskless root filesystem (as I have it laid out, not you), and run the
port tools.  you can also run the package management tools.  All
programs are are files on the disk, there's no local registry as in
windows to worry about.

You can even compile on the diskless client.  It just reads and writes
files to the nfs server to compile ports.
