Use /usr/ports/net/cvsup-without-gui and create a cvsupfile. You can then selectively install src-all, src-contrib, ports-all and any of the various ports sub-trees that you need (but stick with ports-all). cvsup will get the proper Makefiles and whatnot for you. Email me if you need help setting that up. lane _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
