Unhappy OpenBSD Gnome/XFCE tools

Hello all...

(Assume I am a noob, because I am one!)

so... just this morning I've decided to install OpenBSD 4.7 on my oldest box, hopefully some time soon I'll have it up and running as a secure fileserver better than fedora.

so far I've managed to get X running and I've installed 2 desktops, Gnome and XFCE.. but the problem is..

I am missing a ton of (literally.. all those tools for network management I use in Fedora Linux) system administration tools (lol.. I've even had difficulties w/ free -m), and I don't even know the name (or the equivalent package/ports) in OpenBSD..

so.. can anyone please point me to the right direction? help is greatly appreciated, thanks! (I don't really wanna compile from source (too many packages to do!), I like pkg_add better (I use the Alberta, Canada ftp server))
