Default vobcopy for OpenBSD?

On Linux I'd use vobcopy to backup my favorite personal (paid-for) DVDs to my harddrive. Vobcopy is the best tool I've found for this task. I was somewhat surprised when I couldn't find vobcopy in OpenBSD's ports collection or repository. Also, pkglocate(1) and pkg_info(1) are giving me zero hits.

So a port of vobcopy for OpenBSD does not exist? If that's right, is there a similar tool available?


EDIT: I found dvdbackup, dvdcpy, and dvdrip in ports/repository. A nice thing that vobcopy does is decrypt the backup if libdvdcss is installed. Do you know if any of these three alternatives do that? I will investigate further.
