I think comprehending the build scripts is the first hurdle. Wending through them now to figure out how to add /usr/pkg/lib to the library path reliably. (My build of a stock checkout balks finding jpeg.) So much configuration and setup is done automatically via those scripts that I'd hate to have to try building everything "by hand".
