Pocket door trim

Does someone make Pocket Door Trim Kits?
I purchased a pocket door kit, and installed it per the instructions, and everything works great. Then when I went back to the store to purchase trim for the opening, the guy at the store had nothing that looked like what I already had upstairs.
I donít care if it looks just like the upstairs pocket door, but now I am trying to build this from scratch, and I feel like I am trying to reinvent the wheel.
The trim that goes over the drywall on either side is simple, itís just a standard door trim, but what about the jam?
I need something around the pocket opening, where the door slides out, and something on the closing side for a latch to mount in, and something that will capture the door when closed.

The track and the frame always [I think] come together in one package.
Casing can vary from store to store so you may have to visit several to find a match [or atleast close] to what you have.

In the absense of jamb you should be able to rip one out of a 1 x 6.
