Not a hard job. Dependencies can be a pain.
You can also try pkgsrc which is NetBSD's answer for cross platform OS
agnostic package building. You can find all the configuration flags of an
application in the corresponding pkgsrc makefiles. I have personally used
it in various Linux distros, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD and DragonflyBSD at
various times mainly to benchmark stuff.
