The updating instructions for FreeBSD recommend you manually delete this directory prior to an upgrade to avoid any possible troubles with only binaries being left around in the build dir. to free up space I haven't nuked this dir but will in my next backup. also it is nice to run cd /usr/ports && make -DNOCLEANDEPENDS clean to clean up the ports tree and not have it take a week. the -DNOCLEANDEPENDS will just make it go directory by directory without redundantly running a clean on the dependancies for each port also your can safely delete /usr/ports/distfiles as each time you update ports some of these files become obsolete anyway. I believe a cd /usr/src && make clean is supposed to delete the files in /usr/obj anyway, but given what the handbook says on updating this might not be so reliable. -brian _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
