[PC-BSD Pbi-dev] Trying to automate PBI module creation

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I've made a few improvements to my PBI module creation program. It's not ideal yet, but progress is being made. The program will accept a Port name in the form of a directory ie

pbimaker /usr/ports/www/firefox

It then builds the port and tries to work out things like the proper icon, the module's executables, author and website. This version adds an interactive mode. When running in interactive mode, the program will prompt for information it can't find. Some improvements have also been made to logging.

Things I plan to add:
1. Copy the resulting module to /pbi-build/modules
2. Better icon/author/category detection
3. Build a tarball from the module

Any feedback is appreciated.
