Hello guys,

What is the right way of building packages for non-ports applications?

AFAIK 'make package' and ' pkg_create -b name' are based on ports
installed packages.

Is there any way of using same commands or additional scripts to achieve
similar results?

If it matters I'm trying to create packages from net-snmp-5.4.1 sources
(needed for 64-bits counters feature) since ports version is based on

Suggestions are welcome.

What I would do is:

1. check if there is a PR pending, with an update to the new version;
2. try to adapt the existing port to the new version.

Doing 2. should not be much more complicated than building from source, see Porter's Handbook, mainly the ``quick porting'' if you want to do it this way.

You do not really need the port infrastructure to use pkg_create, so it seems to be the right tool you were looking for.

Hope this helps,
