I don't believe that there is one. I'm sure there are N locally-grown solutions out in the wild. We ought to work together to poll people on what they use. As for adding the category, I think there's a quick fix, if you don't care about building INDEX. Add USE_LOCAL_MK=yes to your Makefile invocations, and use the patch below. Note: I haven't tried this yet, so adding the category to ports/Makefile may also be necessary to pacify ports/Mk/bsd.port.subdir.mk (e.g. INDEX.)
