[PC-BSD Pbi-dev] PBI version 9 modules

Thank you for clearing that up. I just have one more question then: How
does the builder know which port the module is associated with? I looked
through the GIMP and Firefox modules and didn't find anything which
directly states, "This module is based on port `category/port-name'."

The port name is mentioned in pbi.conf, but not the full category/path
to that port. Does the build server search for the port name in the same
fashion pkg_add does?

The LICENSE file is optional, you only need to include it if you want the 
end user to be forced to accept the license before installation.

Also, the external-links file is optional as well, that stuff is magically
auto-built, and you only need to specify it when you have some extra links
you want to create from the PBI -> LOCALBASE (/usr/local)
