No "port or something" needed. xset can take care of this for you.
If you run it without parameters from the command line, you'll see
(among other things) the following:
To control Energy Star (DPMS) features:
-dpms Energy Star features off
+dpms Energy Star features on
dpms [standby [suspend [off]]]
(also implicitly enables DPMS features)
a timeout value of zero disables the mode
Just add the necessary commands to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm/Xsetup_0
(if you're using xdm), or your ~/.xsession file.
