[tex-live] building binaries for FreeBSD-STABLE amd64

Hi all,

I'm interested in tex live for my FreeBSD-STABLE amd64 system.

There was some recent traffic on the FreeBSD ports list discussing an
OpenBSD port, and I've been playing with that author's notes and
working on a FreeBSD version.

I'm not as familiar as I should be with the FreeBSD TeX ports
ins-and-outs, and it occurs to me that a quicker path to what I want
at the moment might just be using the TeX Live build infrastructure to
build a new set of binaries.  There's already Freebsd support there,
and there's already x86_64 support so "how hard could it be" (tm).

Is there a document somewhere that summarizes your build and packaging
system?  I've found the subversion repository, if/when I check out the
tree is there a good starting place there?
