What you actually want is the origins, pkg_info -oq "*" will give you that. What I think is a better idea is to get a list of the leaf origins, and let the ports sytem sort out the rest itself - you may end up with a cleaner set of dependencies. See the thread "Moving to new PC" above for a way to get these from portmanager. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
