Note the docs are a little out of date wrt to 7.x and newer. While the make.conf will still be used by gcc when building ports software(s), for the system/kernel/modules this functionality has been moved to /etc/src.conf. Reading man src.conf will explain the details. -Mike _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
