You would spam the heck out of /etc/make.conf if you use it for your stated purpose. As i see it, that file is best suited for system wide configuration, not per port. You may want to create Makefile.local in the ports' directories that will be/are installed by instant-workstation. Mind that not all ports respect/use Makefile.local. Other option would be to save various knobs & switches in pkgtools.conf, read/used by portupgrade, available in /usr/ports/sysutils. The best thing that could be done is by instant-workstation port itself, which would/should one allow to specify various ports' configurations. But then, the purpose of instant-workstation port, as i understand it, is to install various ports w/ minimum fuss. If it were too provide some sort of per port configuration tool, then you would be better off using portupgrade, in addition to, perhaps, (semi)automating the process yourself. - Parv -- _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
