I used the following knobs: WITH_DBM=bdb WITH_BERKELEYDB=db44 I installed the latest version of of DB, version db46 and changed the know accordingly, When I attempted to reinstall the port, I received the same message you are receiving. It appears that the port will not accept the db46 version. I read the ports Makefile, and version db46 is not listed. I did contact the port maintainer regarding this; however, I never received a reply. I am thinking of filing a PR. In any case, I went back to using the older version, db44, without any problems. -- Gerard _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
