comment Building Snapwm on FreeBSD (Problem of gcc and clang)?
This is what ports are: a set of configure options and if needed patch to files and/or makefile (have a look in /usr/ports/x11-wm/ctwm/files for instance). There is currently no one command way of doing it, as there is no ports for snapwm. You need to do it the hard way: configure/Imake whatever you can and/or modify the makefile to reflect your setup.

Do you want only files or directories as well ? (tar -v is showing both)

@usitesion: uname is giving information about your system. So in this case it does mean you have a 64 bit OS

comment Redhat Linux: How to know my system configuration?
I don't really see the point regarding /etc/issue: this is a user level only information message defined by the system admins (ex: legal warning for company servers).

comment How to make a custom FreeBSD distribution
Beware. An ISO fs requires some other things to properly boot. You should use the mkisofs (or another ISO making tool), as suggested by the link you gave.

comment How to make a custom FreeBSD distribution
As soon as you keep all the things in / (no other partition), then there is good chance you got something almost working (you might still need to fix a few conf files).
