Err... Excuse me while I'm a little bull-headed here, and attempting to adjust from the linux world. The reason I was thinking of using the -r option is because it pulls from the ftp site. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but the various versions of freeBSD (3.x, 4.x, and 5.x) are still being worked. Needless to say, 5.x is the bleeding edge, but 4.x hasn't been left to go stale. (Or else how would security patches get done, when needed?) Therefore, the thought was to get the latest and greatest from the net. No, it's not as bleeding edge as the 5.2 stuff, but if a patch was done since the 4.9 iso's were made, it would be a good idea to have that on hand. So I thought it would be a good thing to use -r as a default option. Or am I just using an incorrect line of thinking, due to the flux that I got used to (and wish to avoid) from when I was dealing with the Linux world? So, given that I should have the ports installed from my initial install phase, all I have to do is the make install clean? Too cool. Thank you for the pointer!
