You could take a fbsd install ISO, place the required packages (compiled from ports) in the usual place on the disc, create a special package using pkg_create(1), which holds all your configuration, 3rd party stuff or other backups, afterwards write a sysinstall config (see sysinstall(8) and usr.sbin/sysinstall/install.cfg) and that's it.

However, if you manage to automate this process, please post your efforts here, because personally I think its a good alternative to dump/restore by means of distribution of a generic system install. However, for simple backup solutions, dump/restore might be less effort to deal with
