If you want those dependant programs to use the new library, yes. It's not required though. When you upgrade a port, portupgrade sticks its old shared libraries in /usr/local/lib/compat/pkg so old binaries still run. It's up to you to manually clean it out occasionally (I just checked and mine is 400MB, with files going back to 1999 :) -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
