A language is a language. Ok GCC has groovy extras to allow FreeBSD and Linux to compile. I expect that "Hello. world" will compile link and run .. yes ? Does it matter very much what CPU I have, how much memory etc..? Linking, Now we have another story. It is quite educational to find thet KDE has a dependency on a game program ;) Yup it sure does. I know people put in precious spare time to just about the best OS on the planet. But "portupgrade" just does not hack it. Ok. End of story. Otherwise I will get banned again by the inner corpus. Let us make it better. -- Regards Cliff [ This mail has been checked as virus-free ] To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
