won't work like that, you would need to make sure the directories for
dependencies are there too :o)
Tried to do this with a full ports tree and I stopped it after gcc
started to build.
BTW: You need /usr/src available for the creation of the package.
Preferably matching the kernel you want to install it..
I do this regularly (but without VIMAGE) in a jail where I build all my
packages. ("make install" and "pkg create" in a script)
I do all updates from source. I only update kernel, user land and
ports when security is at risk. Usually independent from each other.
But VirtualBox is an exception. I update kernel and VirtualBox at the same
I was not brave enough to enable VIMAGE and VirtualBox on the same server.
But I may do that soon. I plan a major reconfiguration ca. end of the
year. I hope it is stable enough.
