is there any documentation or a helpful website for how to use ports to

i'm used to compiling it with a pretty long configuration command for
the optional bits i need, e.g. --with-dom --with-dom-xslt --enable-dom
--with-pear --with-gd etc. etc. on and on.

i'm unclear how these options are handled in freebsd ports. is it a
of identifying lots of individual ports, one for each of the
command options i'd normally use?
Run make config on the php port to see if any configuration options you
need are mentioned there.
I normally utlise the php-extensions port - run make config in there for

One of the reasons I've had to edit Makefile manually was because a
client needed JPEG support.

At the time, `make config' didn't provide that option.

You make a couple of valuable points however. It would be easier if the
OP's demands could be met with your method.


php-extensions supports jpg in the make config options - I use that too.
It's a really elegant way of configuring almost every php option we need.
