Devon H. O’Dell has been creating a whole set of premade packages for DragonFly. Instead of working with ports/dfports, you can pkg_add these file directly.
There’s a mirror of these packages at http://freebsd0.sitetronics.com/~dodell/dfpackages as well. I think others will be putting up other mirrors shortly. I’m also looking into setting up a bento-like build system for ports; we’ll see how that works :).
