First I would like to thank all of you who helped me out on my
"Java-Hell" issue. I now have a working native jdk.1.4.2.

It took a bit of doing, and many hours of compile time, but it finally
worked. It did bomb once, about 4 hours into the compile, and demanded I
  do a  kldload linprocfs, followed by a mount -t linprocfs linprocfs
/compat/linux/proc, claiming it needed a proc fs to compile. I assume
this was needed for the compile-time, and not for the run-time???

Anyway, java now works in all browsers.

My next task here is to upgrade another workstation to freebsd. The
woman I live with wants to dump her Linux, and have what I have as well :-)

My question:

I will be installing her machine mainly from pre-compiled packages, as
it is not a dual-processor fast box like mine is.

Java, and other packages are not available in pre-compiled form. Since I
already compiled Java, is there a way to produce a binary-install on my
machine, and install it on her machine? Simply tar up the dir perhaps?

We have limited bandwidth (DSL) and so it would make sense to do a basic
install for her over the net, and then do the rest of the install
locally from stuff I compiled. Not everything, just BIG stuff like Java,
KDE, Gnome the browsers....


There is a binary of Java at, but I haven't tried it.

Otherwise doing a 'make package' after the port has been installed will create a package for you. You should then be able to install the package on the other machine using pkg_add.
