If binary packages work right, you can build it, type "make package",
then use pkg_add on the other machine to add it.
I don't trust this; I do a make, make install, make clean, then repeat
on the other host. too many packages are broken in binary-install
mode I think, and too many packages hard-code the full path into
Makefiles and config files at build time that trickery just isn't
worth the trouble.
