Great! I've got a new version of the PBI builder which the changes 
require, you can grab it here:

ftp://ftp.pcbsd.org/pub/pbi-builder/pbibuild-x86-pcbsd7-2.0.tbz

You'll need to install it first, before re-building the module as it 
sits in SVN.

Basically, what it changes, is that ports are compiled with a custom 
LOCALBASE set to /Programs/<PBIName> + <PBI Ver>

This means you can include binaries / libs which may have caused compat 
problems with the desktop previously, such as kmdr-executor, since it 
will look in /Programs/<dir> for its internal data files now.

This pbi builder is pretty stable, I plan on releasing it in the next 
week or so, just still putting it through the paces internally here :)
