This is a known bug with EasyPBI version 1.0 (in PBI form) and has 
already been corrected in the PCBSD-Projects/EasyPBI repository and 
tagged version 1.1, but it has not been updated in ports yet.

As a workaround, if you start EasyPBI from the command line (just run 
"EasyPBI") and then try to build a PBI it will still fail, but it will 
print the command to build the PBI in the terminal output. Quit EasyPBI 
and run that command manually from the command line and it will work 
properly. After that, you should be able to use EasyPBI normally, 
without any further issues or command line usage.
