Hi list, I've read the handbook for ports, basically (if I understand)
are files that brings information (location, dependencies) to the system
compile a series of files (sources) to have the final piece of software.
Very nice with the advantages that comes with this type of installation,
but, what about a big applications like Gnome, OpenOffice and so on. I
try ports because I can't have a fast/long connection for downloads (due
some restrictions on my country) so I always install via packages, and it
takes a while, well a little bit. So what I am asking if is anyone has
a Gnome, OpenOffice.org, or any other big installations via ports (say in
Pentium 4 2.8GHz HT with 512Mb RAM) can tell me the elapsed time ??? Just
curious...thanks in advance.

I have a P4 2.8 w/ 1G RAM and it takes hours to compile OpenOffice and
around 9GB of hdd space.
