I support various types of servers and workstations which need different "local" software sets. I do all my building on one machine, so I use LOCALBASE and PKG_DBDIR in /etc/make.conf to keep the various configurations separate. Unfortunately many ports don't respect the LOCALBASE setting and install into /usr/local, even while recording the packing list as being in LOCALBASE!
The p5 ports seem especially bad about this. I understand the need for perl to be able to find its local packages, so after I manually fix things up I need to know how to tell perl to look for its stuff under LOCALBASE instead of /usr/local. Can someone tell me? Or alternatively, has someone else found a better way to deal with the whole problem of maintaining different software sets?? Thanks!!!
