Installing 3rd party apps from ports tree

 FreeBSD comes with FreeBSD Ports and Packages Collection that offers various types of 3rd party apps 
 which is located in /usr/ports .
 With FreeBSD Ports, users can install applications using a simple and easy steps.

 1) http://www.freebsd.org/ports/
 2) FreeBSD Handbook, Chapter 4.5

 We can see in directory /usr/ports, there are so many applications categories such as audio, devel, editors 
 and etc.
 Assume that we are going to install cvsup at /usr/ports/net/cvsup

 # cd /usr/ports/net/cvsup
 # make install clean

 After that, FreeBSD will automatically fetch the source file from the website and install it in your pc.
 Most applications that you want to install requires other applications to be installed and it is called 
 'dependency', but don't worry because FreeBSD will detect whether the required apps already installed 
 or not, and if the required apps is not installed, FreeBSD will install it for you.
 After installation completed, you may run the applications.
