Would that also work if "DEBUG_FLAGS='g'" were placed in the /etc/make.conf file or does it have to be placed in the environment prior to building the port. I assume that the '-g' has to still be placed on the 'make' command when doing the actual build. -- Gerard _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
