/usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk comments section and /usr/ports/Mk/bsd.*.mk for specific collections, like bsd.databases.mk lets you set a default version for various database engines, for which multiple versions exist in the port. It does not have to be env vars, make.conf works as well, but you will forget in 3 months you have set it, so be careful what you choose and where you put it. -- Mel _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
