Default Is there an utlity to help compiling from source?

Hi,
I'm on CURRENT, earmv6hf. I built a minimal desktop compiling from pkgsrc with as few enabled options as possible. On ARM it naturally takes an astonishing amount of time to complile larger packages, so I was wondering if there's a package manager meant for source-building available, maybe like Marino's FreeBSD synth, or portmaster....possibly able to handle dependencies and suitable to upgrade 3rd-party software all-in-once

This would turn all the more useful considering I plan on migrating my laptop too from FORMAL 7.1, to CURRENT, and obviously I'm not going to use 7.0 binaries (which I'm currently managing with NIH binary-package manager, recommended !)

Thanks in advance!

The documentation has a section on cross-compiling. I was not successful in my one attempt to build i386 packages on an amd64.
