I am a newbie to FreeBSD I'm using an old machine right now with limited disk space, so I don't want to install the entire ports collection. I want to build a custom port tree, and I'm finding the docs to be a bit silent on this account as I guess nowadays disk space is usually abundant so installing the entire port tree is the preferred route.
Can someone give some basic guidance on: 1) Do I install a compiler or does the basic FreeBSD install have it installed already? 2) How do I setup a single application port? 3) Will I need to trace dependence or will make pull in the required libraries? 4) Can I use CVsup to keep a limited number of ports up to date? Any and all guidance in this regard will be highly appreciated.
