well... lately i'm having trouble with ports that don't update on time and i have to 'fish' which mirrors are updated and which not. like for the new asterisk port for example... also for stuff that is 'really' important i usually build from src - apache, php, qmail etc. so i usually go to the src for mysql too. nothing against ports really, i like them... i guess i'm just used to build from src and besides i don't know how to pass options to ports while installing... like --prefix=/here/ --enable-this, --disable-that kinda options/flags... > FWIW, there are differences between the version that we (MySQL) supply > and the version that we (FreeBSD) supply, notably in the compiler > options and installation paths.
