Make a pkg-plist for a FreeBSD port. Try to be as "automatic" as possible.

That's all it does ;-)

You can find it in the FreeBSD ports collection at ports-mgmt/pkg-plist

Basic usage

  1. Make your port, build it with PREFIX set to /var/tmp/ptest or another empty directory of your choice
  2. cd to your port's directory (e.g. /usr/ports/cat/port or ~/myport)
  3. Run this
