I have a problem building ports on 2 of my machines.
This problem is new, and occured on each machine (at different times)
following a problem with the ports database. Maybe I screwed up the
Anyway, here's what I get:
===> Installing for gettext-0.12.1
===> Generating temporary packing list
===> Checking if devel/gettext already installed
*** Error code 1
This happens on any port build on both machines. On one machine I've been
able to force installs using:
portinstall -f <insert port path here>
This seems to only work on only one machine though.
I'd really like to be able to cure this problem on both machines. Any clues?
(Running FreeBSD-5.0 CURRENT on both machines)
