I think their mechanism is better, actually.  
cd /usr/ports/shells/tcsh ; make
ftp's the source if you don't have it, patches it, and builds it.  I'd
_love_ to have this in with a collecting point for patches. 

I am moving OS's around on my disks, but will have a NetBSD back soon
to put this in if there's interest.
