If disk space is at a premium with an out of date ports tree, and ports were likely added in the interim, then disk space will still be an issue with a current ports tree, no? So you may want to: 1) use packages, and skip ports entirely or 2) install the ports tree, and update it as a part of a make world process. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
