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
5) Ask for missing build depends

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.
