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.

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.

Thanks for your help.

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.
