i would seriously check out all of the relevant documentation in the
FreeBSD handbook before assuming that FreeBSD does not have these tools
that you are looking for.  hint, check out "make world".

hrm...not too sure that keeping it in a small /tmp partition is the right
place to track source code.  anyway, i'm pretty sure this behaviour can be
modified.  again i'd check out the handbook and the man pages for ports.

the BSD man pages are a very good reference, in my experience they are
better maintained, and have more info, than the GNU man and info systems.
