I wonder - are those instructions still relevant nowadays? I stopped
using that script a few upgrade cycles ago (last time around... maybe
2.20?) and portupgrade (I guess portmaster too) handles everything
pretty fine these days (w/ some additional steps from UPDATING when
needed, but that's expectable and also not gnome-specific).
Or is that FAQ meant only for upgrading from 2.10 to 2.26? (But then,
where would anyone get 2.10 now in 2009? That would be a criminal
Still, astro - if you're upgrading Gnome from a recent version (like
2.24 to 2.26), you can normally use portupgrade (or portmaster) as you
do with the rest of the ports, or as described here:
