I'm familiar with using portupgrade to build and install ports. I've read the portupgrade man pages and see options to build and install packages but am not understanding how to put it all together.

Check this out.

Thanks, that helps. Now, is there any way to make a package without installing it? For example, on my build machine I have the full version of bacula installed. However, I'd like to make a package that is built with the "CLIENT_ONLY=YES" option. So do I really have to build and install it "wrong" on the build machine and then rebuild and install it "right" just to get the package I want to install on another machine? Seem like there would be a better way.
