Here is a sample (working) port. Un-tar the archive under ports/sysutils. It 
installs the script to ${LOCALBASE}/etc/periodic/monthly and prints a 
message about how to enable it. Have a look at it, edit all the text 
entries to make them your own (in particular I didn't do a real pkg-descr), 
and submit it as a PR (I can assist you with that off-list if you'd like).

Feature request: the script should output one line of text indicating 
success or failure (and to remind people who read their periodic e-mails 
that it's actually running).
