You've updated just the java/linux-sun-jdk14 port, but not the common code in /usr/ports/Mk that it relies upon. The problem you're seeing is a missing definition of the $(CPIO) variable that was added to the bsd.port.mk file. Attempting to update the ports tree piecemeal as you are doing is unlikely to be very productive: as well as problems with the core build system you'll also run into troubles where dependencies have been updated -- particularly shared libraries. The most effective way of keeping up to date is to cvsup the *whole* ports tree -- doing this regularly: say once a week, will not overtax even a low bandwidth connection such as a POTS dialup, although pulling down the distfiles for updated ports can be another matter. The easiest way to get going with cvsup is: # pkg_add -r cvsup-without-gui Then edit /etc/make.conf to set the following variables: SUP_UPDATE= yes # SUP= /usr/local/bin/cvsup SUPFLAGS= -g -L 2 SUPHOST= cvsup.XX.FreeBSD.org #SUPFILE= /usr/share/examples/cvsup/stable-supfile PORTSSUPFILE= /usr/share/examples/cvsup/ports-supfile #DOCSUPFILE= /usr/share/examples/cvsup/doc-supfile where the SUPHOST setting should be set to your local cvsup mirror. I've shown entries for cvsup'ing src and docs commented out, but you can use those as well, if you want. Then whenever you want to update your ports tree, just do: # cd /usr/ports # make update # make index and then portupgrade(1) to your heart's content. One (entirely optional) tip that can save you some bandwidth is to tell cvsup not to update the files INDEX (used on 4.x) and INDEX-5 (which 'make index' will replace anyhow). Do that by adding the lines: ports/INDEX ports/INDEX-5 to the /usr/sup/refuse file -- just create one if it doesn't exist already.
