I just upgraded (I think :-)) from 4.5 to 4.10. Initially tried an upgrade, which failed because of an undefined reference in the X11 font server library (libfontconfig.so.1, FT_Get_BDF_Property").
Not to be deterred, I then attempted to do a complete install over the top of everything. This failed for the same reason. I then did an install without X11. This sort of seemed to work, although I don't think things finished up properly because I didn't get the usual questions about running an http server, etc. However, it appeared the sys sources were updated and all the files were in place, so I built a custom kernel (needed for my network drivers) and things started up ok; it says it's 4.10-RELEASE #0, and files in /etc were replaced and had to be tweaked (rc.conf, etc). Unfortunately, the popper I was using (qpopper 4.0.3) was causing things on clients attempting to pop to hang, so I decided to update it. I deleted it (pkg_delete), downloaded the new .tgz, and attempted to do a make: Makefile error: There is a COMMENTFILE in this port. COMMENTFILEs have been deprecated in favor of COMMENT variables. Please rectify this. *** Error code 1 I attempted to do a pkg_add, which resulted in: pkg_add: package bsdpan-Archive-Tar-1.10 has no origin recorded and many similar messages of other bsdpan stuff I'm guessing the entire package / make environment is hosed, and I probably need to completely rebuild the system from scratch. Is this true, or is there a simpler answer? Thanks for any insights.
