I'm not sure what you mean. I am running 4-stable, and ports are building just fine.

I don't read every freebsd- list, but I haven't seen any mention of this, or witnessed any evidence of a problem. If you are having trouble with the ports collection, you could try removing and cvsupping a fresh tree. > I have used FreeBSD for a decade, and it is the first time > that I have to change the OS version due to problems broght > from the distributions. What version were/are you using? Why would you change the OS version because of a ports problem? I'm not clear, here. > Thanks to anyone which could look into this, Again, I can only speak from my own experience, and on my machines, running 4.7 - 4-stable, ports build just fine. The problem may lie elsewhere.
