The distfiles for the builder are in /pbi-build/distfiles by default, 
you should be able to pre-populate them in there.

Also, when you hit ctrl-c to break, it may leave some stuff mounted in 
/pbi-build/pbisandbox/usr/ports/distfiles and ~/dev in pbisdandbox, you 
may need to unmount those before starting again. I've gotta add a trap 
to the script still, so if you break out it unmounts all cleanly :P
