What's wrong with the pkill port?  It has already been picked from
NetBSD, and whatever changes are needed for it to work on FreeBSD
have already been made (and pgrep is part of pkill).

If you add this to /usr/bin instead of leaving it in ports, don't
forget to do the same for doscmd and some other things that are
only in ports.
