I've experimented with the isc-dhcp3-server port all 3 options - NO_INSTALL_MANPAGES, NOPORTDOCS and MANPREFIX and in every case there were manpages installed in /mnt/man/
[EMAIL PROTECTED] /mnt/man]# find . -name *dhcp* ./man5/dhcp-options.5 ./man5/dhcp-eval.5 ./man5/dhcpd.conf.5 ./man5/dhcpd.leases.5 ./man8/dhcpd.8 However, with [EMAIL PROTECTED] /usr/ports/net/isc-dhcp3-server]# make install clean MANPREFIX=/tmp/ PREFIX=/mnt/ we got... ===> Compressing manual pages for isc-dhcp3-server-3.0.5_2 gzip: can't stat: /tmp//man/man1/omshell.1: No such file or directory gzip: can't stat: /tmp//man/man5/dhcpd.conf.5: No such file or directory gzip: can't stat: /tmp//man/man5/dhcpd.leases.5: No such file or directory gzip: can't stat: /tmp//man/man5/dhcp-eval.5: No such file or directory gzip: can't stat: /tmp//man/man5/dhcp-options.5: No such file or directory gzip: can't stat: /tmp//man/man8/dhcpd.8: No such file or directory Thanks for all the advice.
