       The PBI I'm posting has the following Devel Specs:
             Built on PC-BSD 7.0.2 Fibo
             Using PBi-Creator V5.0

       Of course creating a PC-BSD 1.x platform PBI should be light work.

        Download URL: 

       BTW (This is off-topic), I installed the PBI-Creator V5.0 ... and 
ever since SystemUpdater keeps informing me of a V4.91 update!
       Thought you should know (or should I post another topic???)

       Now as far as the ports go .... I'm in full agreement! However, I 
have not been able to successfully get in touch with the port 
maintainers. There are two ports in question net-p2p/rblibtorrent/ and 
net-p2p/qbittorrent/. Unfortunately I'm starting to feel as if they 
really aren't being maintained .... it's been over 9 months since the 
last update for these 2 ports. (While the developers have  been updating 
the source constantly throughout 2008).

       Anyhow, I will keep you posted on my progress there. In the mean 
time I would appreciate you looking at what I've done thus far and 
providing your input as to how I may best contribute to pbiDir ... Is 
there a wish list of ports desired to go PBI for which resources do not 
currently exist ??? ... I would love to utilize pbibuilder on an actual 
up-to-date port :)
