Hi! Generally, all build-time settings are done from the command line in the ports directory. It's wise to first check the Makefile in the ports directory to see a list of options you can build with that particular port. For example, to build Exim with the Cyrus SASL authentication daemon one would issue the command: make WITH_SASLAUTHD=yes install or make -DWITH_SASLAUTHD You can naturally add as many options one after the other. The Makefile already contains a bunch of default settings which you can enable or disable but you shouldn't make these changes to the actual Makefile as this will just be overwritten on your next ports update. You may also wish to make a note of all your build-time settings and add them to /usr/local/etc/pkgtools.conf so the next time you update Exim the same settings will be used. The pkgtools.conf file is the configuration file that comes with portupgrade ( /usr/ports/sysutils/portupgrade ) Cheers, -- Nelis Lamprecht PGP: http://www.8ball.co.za/pgpkey/nelis.asc "Unix IS user friendly..
