comment What is the preferred way to build software in the BSDs?
Well he asked preferred and it is my preferred way. I see more projects using it, so it is becoming more preferred by more people. I'm not sure of any "officially BSD preferred" way.

comment FreeBSD Ports Broken — Python Issue? Portmaster -a
The pkg commands aren't a big change from the old pkg_* style commands, just a slight syntax change. While pkg mainly aims at binary installs, you can disable the repositories and pkg install should then fall back to compiling from ports tree (or do a binary upgrade to get started). Edit /etc/pkg/FreeBSD.conf to disable the official repository. pkg info -aoq | xargs pkg install -f should re-install everything for you.

comment How do I override rw-r--r— root/wheel for a all files in a directory?
The user mentions being on OSX - a user account with admin privileges on OSX has access to sudo without modifying sudoers. If he didn't have an admin account he shouldn't be able to delete files owned by root by saying yes to override.

comment How to modify mount options in an OpenBSD install?
The fdisk stage specifies what part of the disk is to be used - these are partitions as you know from windows or mac. The next step (bsdlabel) slices the disk space from the partition you want to use into filesystems which have different mount points (confusingly these are called partitions on openbsd - freebsd calls these slices). Section 4.6.4 in the above link shows disklabel usage which is where the mountpoints are configured. Following the link to the man bsdinstall page shows n allows you to name the mount point for an existing partition.

The openbsd faq's on installation should help.
