FreeBSD Ports 

Here are my extensions to the FreeBSD ports tree. To use it you should already be familiar with FreeBSD and the handling of ports and packages.

Its target is FreeBSD 13.2 (amd64). It contains ports of my own software as well as ports for software I'm missing in the ports tree.

About some of the Ports


The archive contains a port of SeaMonkey as well as the therefore needed, but deprecated port of lang/python27; Note that lang/python27 is just a build dependency, and can be removed afterwards.

Updating from version 2.49.5 or earlier means "no way back" (or: "use your backup") as the user directory isn't backward compatible.

For a faster build process you may want to check if the following packages are installed on your machine: cmake gmake gtk2 gtk3 llvm13 rust-cbindgen; But consider that pre-installing those dependencies will set them to a "non-automatic" state, while the build process would leave them with the "automatic" flag; So you've got to take care of getting rid of them again by your own – a simple pkg autoremove won't do that for you…

If you don't want the english user interface take a look at the available language packs. To get the spellchecker up & running you have to install a dictionary addon (don't forget to select that dictionary also in the preferences). And if you're looking for a working version of "uBlock Origin" – here it is.


This port needs ImageMagicks bindings for Perl. As they aren't enabled by default you also need to compile the port graphics/ImageMagick7; Just having the package installed won't work.


Backed port: At time of building this "ports extensions" this was the actual and official state of that port; It's just included because it will be removed from the ports tree soon. But as it's needed to build SeaMonkey: With this you're able to pull it temporarily in even if it's officially gone.

SeaMonkey Packages

For those who don't want to deal with the ports tree, here are SeaMonkey binary packages. If you're unsure which one to take – then it's the first one ;) To install it just execute:

pkg install path/to/packagename.pkg
