There doesn't seem to be one build by the port, so I wrote a
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/portsentry.sh that looks someting like this:

#!/bin/sh
case "$1" in
start)
        [ -x /usr/local/bin/portsentry ] && /usr/local/bin/portsentry -tcp
        echo -n " portsentry"
        ;;
stop)
        killall portsentry
        ;;
esac


I've seen others punt and simply add "/usr/local/bin/portsentry -tcp" to
their /etc/rc.local.  It's not as SysV-compliant, but it works.
