Personally, I use -R. Occasionally, I've had problems with dependent packages _requiring_ a rebuild after rebuilding a library. I've _never_ had trouble with a library having trouble after building dependent packages. When I'm upgrading a system, I start with "portupgrade -an | grep '\+'", then I pick a good place to start and use "portupgrade -Rn <pkg_name>" to see what's going to happen before actually pulling the trigger. -- Bill Moran Collaborative Fusion Inc. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
