Just to inform you, I tried these steps but the package still wants to be installed. First I did "make -DWITH_CLIENT_ONLY=YES build". Then I did "make package" and got an error about deinstalling the package before installing again.I am not sure but perhaps after the make -DCLIENT_ONLY=yes stuff you can do make package, this should in my opinion make the package you can install everywhere you wish (freebsd ofcourse).
Note that i did not read any explaination about this, and i just assume
this when i "decode" the command into explaination.
Thanks for your help.

Check this out.I have a "faster" machine that I'd like to use to build packages and then install those packages on my "slower" machine. I'm looking for links to info describing this process and some best practices. 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.

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.
