Gee, thanx. I used it once on a server that didn't make it into production... I first heard of it here (nice reference):

Nice tool when you can't get the whole ports tree, or need a few ports and don't want to get the whole ports tree.
Other option is to build port with options needed somewhere else, make a package and transfer it to machine, pretty much like Oko said.

If you are planning on moving /tmp to RAM I recommend tmpfs in stead of mfs (it is in NetBSD and ported to FreeBSD).
