I just finished adding these module to the build server.

Thanks Jesse! I am interested in seeing how your pbimaker works, because
I usually do them by hand....   :-)

I find it usually works well. For GUI applications I can just run

pbimaker -8 -9 -s /usr/ports/category/name

And, a second later, it's done. The only thing PBImaker usually has
trouble with is finding icons. So I pass it a fall-back icon...

pbimaker -8 -9 -s -b my_alt_icon.png /usr/ports/category/name

It's rare that I have to do any custom tweaking to the modules. 

You're probably experienced enough you can put together a module in a
minute or two from a template, so it might not be a big time saver for
you, but I find it speeds up my work a lot.
