Leave it as the dot. If you want to have a single supfile that handles ports and source, you can say something like: *default host=cvsup2.freebsd.org *default prefix=/usr *default base=/usr *default release=cvs tag=RELENG_4 *default delete use-rel-suffix *default compress src-all ports-all tag=. This may be explained in the sample supfiles in /usr/share/examples/cvsup, I am not sure. -Will _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
