I've found 2 problems with BuildContrib on BSD.

In prot() function, $perms needs to be an octal number or a string, otherwise chmod complains. To fix this we could just add the line:

$perms = sprintf '0%o', $perms;

Also, there is no md5sum command, it's just called md5 on BSD.

perldoc -f chmod says:

chmod LIST

Changes the permissions of a list of files. The first element of the list must be the numerical mode, which should probably be an octal number, and which definitely should not be a string of octal digits: 0644 is okay, '0644' is not.

So chmod 511 should be identical to chmod 0777.

It seems that md5sum is a gnu program. If you don't have it, install it; I don't think md5 does the same thing.
