What's the difference between packages made by these two methods?
Eg I have youtube_dl installed. From within the youtube_dl port directory
# make package-recursive
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 8389 29 May 21:14
whereas from within my home directory
% pkg_create -Rb youtube_dl-2008.04.20
-rw-r--r-- 1 chrisw chrisw 8281 29 May 21:22 youtube_dl-2008.04.20.tbz
similarly there is a size difference for the one or two dependency
packages I checked that were created at the same time.
make package in the ports directory insists on compiling and installing
the port and seems to do a lot of other things like registering
dependencies and creating symlinks in /usr/ports/packages/ whereas
pkg_create just creates the package tarball (and dependencies).
I would prefer to use pkg_create to avoid recompiling everything but I
would like to know that installing a pkg_create package with pkg_add
will properly install all the dependencies as well.
