I've been using Drupal for a long time with DragonFly. It works really well.
However, I'd recommend not using the Drupal found in pkgsrc because it lags
behind the official one by quite a bit, which is prone to regular security
updates. All the other tools are in pkgsrc though, albeit was a bit finicky to
get all the PHP things going. Also if you don't have too much traffic, why not
run it in a vkernel in case of a security compromise.

Good luck :)
