The <link xlink:href="http://portscout.FreeBSD.org">FreeBSD Ports distfile scanner</link> can show you ports for which the distfiles are not fetchable. You can check on your own ports or use it to find ports that need their <varname>MASTER_SITES</varname> updated.
<package>ports-mgmt/poudriere</package> is the most thorough way to test a port through the entire cycle of installation, packaging, and deinstallation. Documentation is located at the <link xlink:href="https://github.com/freebsd/poudriere"> poudriere github repository</link>
<citerefentry vendor="ports"><refentrytitle>portlint</refentrytitle><manvolnum>1</manvolnum></citerefentry> is an application which can be used to verify that your port conforms to many important stylistic and functional guidelines. <application>portlint</application> is a simple heuristic application, so you should use it <emphasis>only as a guide</emphasis>. If <application>portlint</application> suggests changes which seem unreasonable, consult the <link xlink:href="@@URL_RELPREFIX@@/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/porters-handbook">Porter's Handbook</link> or ask for advice.
The <link xlink:href="http://lists.FreeBSD.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-ports">FreeBSD ports mailing list</link> is for general ports-related discussion. It is a good place to ask for help. You can <link xlink:href="https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo">subscribe, or read and search the list archives</link>. Reading the archives of the <link xlink:href="http://lists.FreeBSD.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-ports-bugs">FreeBSD ports bugs mailing list</link> and the <link xlink:href="http://lists.FreeBSD.org/mailman/listinfo/svn-ports-head">SVN commit messages for the ports tree for head/</link> may also be of interest.
