I've got a network running different versions of FreeBSD (6.3,

What I'd like to do is export the ports hierarchy to all
machines, but preserving ports/packages for each
version/architecture.  I also want to make rebuilding indexes
run as fast as possible.

Right now, I simply exports(5) /usr/ports via NFSv3 ...

The following 2 lines on each machine in /etc/make.conf should
fix those problems:
It would seem the package building tools (make package, portinstall
-p) do not honor the PACKAGES setting in /etc/make.conf.  The
package is simply deposited in /usr/ports/{category}/{pkgname}.  Is
there a way to force the package builder to use this knob?
make package respects it.
Curious... I tested it on two different machines, and make package did
not put the package in the expected location.  Perhaps I'm missing

Ah, my bad:
do-package: ${TMPPLIST}
    @if [ -d ${PACKAGES} ]; then \

$PACKAGES has to be created before it respected.
Ah ha!  Thanks for that info, and the reference to Mk/
