FreeBSD ARM Tools 1

Static pkg Tool: pkg-static

Built according to instructions noted by David Quattlebaum’s comment on Gonzos post Packages(*) for Rasberry Pi(**).
This handy tool will allow you to bootstrap the pkg system for FreeBSD as in the example below, even though the original original pkg package is not currently available via FreeBSD servers. Use it to install your first package… pkg! SHA sum is provided.

Build Script: build-arm-image.sh

An expansion on original by Gonzo from Building image for Raspberry Pi: up to date version. Added various switches and knobs to make the update / build process a little easier. Also, separates the source update, build and image-creation parts of the script, so you can build, for example, a number of images of different sizes, without having to updated source code and rebuild each time.
