libc and libm are system libraries. These are not ports. You find them in the compat4X and compat5X stuff coming along with FreeBSD itself.
Look on a close Mirror for files like ./5.4-RELEASE/compat3x: CHECKSUM.MD5 compat3x.aa compat3x.ab compat3x.inf compat3x.mtree install.sh ./5.4-RELEASE/compat4x: CHECKSUM.MD5 compat4x.aa compat4x.ab compat4x.inf compat4x.mtree install.sh # -> fetch the complete directories, then cd compat3x sh install.sh # etc. Installing compat3x, compat4x from any release will work an all boxes. Thus, you can fetch the stuff from 6.1-RELEASE, install this on your 5.5, and it will work on your 7.X, too! + It does no harm to your disk, because it's small. enjoy, Armin -- PUBBOX Postmaster + spam-killer.
