Well, actually it is:
1) Looking up a server name
2) ssh to that box
3) chroot like the welcome message told you
4) check build depends

And maybe:

5) Ask for missing build depends
6) Wait

I'm not a BSD porter myself, but fixed a couple of FTBFS bugs on it.  I
also was also able to fix a FTBFS on Sparc, Mipsel and other arches
using porter machines.  I found that you often just need some basic Unix
understanding to actually fix such a bugs.

Best regards,
