Hey, Allan and Benedict

I was using Ubuntu Mate for quite a while but decided to try out FreeBSD after having watched your show for some time. I also started using I3 around the same time and used the FreeBSD ports system to customize it a bit. I used it to change the default colour of dmenu and to customize I3 so that it would bring up a binary clock when I brought up the I3 status bar using the windows key. I have recently decided to try using OpenBSD after having accidentally stuffed up an update and messed up my config files :'(. I managed to install it and set up everything how I like it with the exception of the things mentioned above.

My problem is that I cannot figure out how to edit the source code of a port on OpenBSD and then do a make install on the modified version of the port. I know this may be a simple question but I'm not really sure where or how to find the answer. Any explanations or advice you have on how to do this would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
Sam
