I'm sorry if I'm asking in the wrong place, but I have tried elsewhere and go no response.

I want to install wine, but without X on the system. Obviously trying to do this from ports drags in loads of X-related stuff. There doesn't seem to be a WITHOUT_X11 knob available for the wine port (presuambly because hardly anyone would want it).

I guess that leaves me installing it the 'old-fashioned' way, but unfortunately my inexperience leaves me floundering here! Because FreeBSD has such a wonderful ports system, all documentation I can find for installing from source refers to ports, and I have not found a single one showing a layman how to install from source manually, and what problems I have to look out for.

As you can probably tell, I lack a lot experience, so keep it fairly monosyllabic please!

(In case you wonder what on earth I want this for, it is to run a 'render slave' which is Windows only, and simply runs in the background - it would not even count as a 'console application'. I have three very underused FreeBSD servers and they could do with some rendering work to keep them from getting bored, but I don't want X cluttering them up.)

Any help gratefully received
