That's what I would imagine too. But who knows what's going on in the strange realm of build dependencies and run dependencies... :-) > I can manually remove X server and the fonts and xclac... and the > system is still running very well (and updating without trying to > reinstall X server...) That should even work without a warning (as the libs for xterm would be kept, and those required by the X server _only_ could safely be removed). In case such a procedure is needed more often, a local patch could be added to the respective port that would remove the unneeded parts in the post-install phase. -- Polytropon Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
