gcc and g++ are included in FreeBSD base system - you get them by
default. Other possible dependencies (X11, etc.) you need to install
from the ports, then proceed "as usual".

Create a port directory structure, then create a binary package from the
port. Take care to read hier(7), specifically about the /usr/local tree
- that's where your application will install, and where the libraries
installed from ports will be installed (i.e. you need -L /usr/local/lib
and -I /usr/local/include, adapt as needed).
