What are my options, and your recommendations?
Assuming all machines have similar installations of FreeBSD, you could just cp -Rp /usr/local to the other machines over the network -- or have it just NFS mounted (no local copy on each machine).
Additionally, you would have to copy missing items from /var/db/pkg to the other machines. And possibly diff/merge some files in /etc (some ports may need additional user accounts, etc).
