I found an article in which mentioned that jhbuild can run in FreeBSD 8.x,but I don't find any help about it and I don't find jhbuild port.Thank you for your help.
jhbuild is a build script for building gnome. http://library.gnome.org/devel/jhbuild/
But I don't see why you want to use it. We of the GNOME team keep the GNOME version in FreeBSD ports to the latest. And we track the development versions in our devel repo. Also jhbuild doesn't include FreeBSD build specific patches. But overall that stuff isn't production ready. But if you really want to give it go, take a look at this page. http://www.freebsd.org/gnome/docs/develfaq.html

I installed gnome PBI and I don't find music player and firefox and possibility to add and remove applications in it and I would like to learn and get to know how to prepair FreeBSD for running jhbuild to make a custom desktop.Thank you for your help.
The reason why you didn't get rhythmbox (audio player) or firefox is because they aren't part of the gnome desktop. What I mean is that they are released separate from the official gnome release. This probably different from what linux distrobutions do.
You can manually add any missing programs with the package management software shipped with pc-bsd.

The rhythmbox is not a good music player because it has no eq.It good for only radio listening.I use pc-bsd with my favorite apps.I would like to learn and as I can see the linux and windows has very good descriptions for runnig jhbuild to create gnome desktop.
Then pick another one, if rhythmbox doesn't give you want you want, I only used it as a example. If there is a application you want but isn't available via pbi's, you can request someone to make a pbi in the PBI Request forum.
Also I think the reason why there aren't any jhbuild instructions for FreeBSD is because it is not needed. We have the latest gnome release in ports. And we working on the development series actively.
If you really want to keep try jhbuild I'm afraid I can't help you.
