Default FreeBSD Ports Collection
WOW!!! , I just got done checking out the FreeBSD Ports Collection and it's another confirmation of my choice to go with PCBSD.

I take it that I can install anything there.

Can somebody tell me how real quick, or do I have to read all this?

Yes you have to read and experiment- there is good tools also like portupgrade, portinstall, pkg_deinstall.

Code:
# pkg_add -r portupgrade
of course you can install it from ports.
