Hi guys,

I have what I believe are Gnome components installed on my computer
(gimp, Gconf, gtk, glib, etc). I'm running portupgrade now and I read
the message that I should upgrade Gnome using the script provided by
FreeBSD Gnome. The question is, if I only have parts of Gnome
installed, while I'm using fluxbox as window manager, do I need to
run the script? or is portupgrade fine? my portupgrade is currently
still running and I don't seem to encounter any problem (yet).

I also run that way and from my experience the odds are pretty high that something will be done out of order. I did a portupgrade -pufr glib to do the upgrade and had a few problems that I had to manually update. I understand from other comments that re-running the upgrade script makes the update go faster than a -rf glib. If you look at ports that you have installed that depend on glib, the list seems to go forever. I don't know if a -pufrR glib would have prevented the problems but that would have used even more computer time to do the update. I think the AMD 2400+ needed something like 13 hours to do the update the way I did it.

I personal would go for rebuild everything that depend on pkg-config instead glib, because of libxml2, libxslt and etc that don't depend on glib.
