If things go as planned today, I should be able to better answer that 
question later.

Most of the pre-requisites are in ports. A few of the perl modules are

Some of the ports require configuration using make config, but I have 
for the most part just done make installs so far. If it turns out that 
doesn't work, I'll reinstall with different options and let everyone 
know on the dev list.

There is this document that I've been using as a guide:
