Problem: make install fails on each and every port:
===> Checking if ....... alredy installed
*** Error code 1
Yes I've already searched the archives and noticed
problems a few weeks ago. They mentioned that this
problem was affecting previous versions of FreeBSD.
However I've been running 4.8-STABLE for months. To be
sure I updated my ports tree and sources yesterday and
remade the world and kernel. The problem keeps
FreeBSD 4.8-STABLE (Aug 5 2003)
I also recreated my INDEX, INDEX.db and pkgdb.db
files, just in case the problem was somewhere else:
mv INDEX INDEX.backup
mv INDEX.db INDEX.db.backup
mv pkgdb.db pkgdb.db.backup
This didn't work either.
Now, I am able to bypass the problem if I set
FORCE_PKG_REGISTER. However I'd like to be able to use
my ports system w/o having to do this.
i) if the problem was the use of the '-O' option with
pkg_info, why do I keep failing to install things if
pkg_info and bsd.port.mk are up to date? Is there any
other problem? (perhaps I missed it while reading the
ii) where else may I look into?
Thanks in advance,

PS2: this is my third try to get this message posted.
I've already failed from my university and
netscape.net accounts. The problem seems to be at
freebsd.org, but I see some messages getting through
... can anyone check this?
