Hi Erik:

mtree eh? I had to man that one... and I will obviously have to read it again - properly. Any chance of asking for a bit of perspective on the command from you? If not, no big deal I will do a bit some background reading.
Thanks,  Graham/

Is there a nice tidy way to clear my userland - CLEAN without

pkg_delete -a
should get rid of anything not in the base system.
alternately, deleting /usr/local and /usr/X11R6 will
remove it pretty quickly, as well.  though one would
have to check for things started in /etc/rc.conf

Variables set in rc.conf refering to nonexistent programs have no effect. But if you delete /usr/local and /usr/X11R6 you'll mess up the package database. Clean it by deleting content of /var/db/pkg also. Recreate the /usr/local and /usr/X11R6 using mtree.

Cheers, Erik
