probably 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 time.

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.


Just want to add that everything works as expected with VIMAGE and VBox.
