For some reason, I can't seem to update the index for the ports database:
idfubar# cd /usr/ports
idfubar# make index
Generating INDEX-5 - please wait..perl: not found
perl: not found
I also tried attempting my first 'portsdb -Uu' after a successful CVSUp,
but am running into some problems:
idfubar# portsdb -Uu
Updating the ports index ... perl: not found
/usr/local/sbin/make_describe_pass2:70:in `write': Broken pipe
from /usr/local/sbin/make_describe_pass2:70:in `puts'
failed to generate INDEX!
portsdb: index generation error
Can anyone explain why I might be getting these errors? My installation
was a minimal install, do I need to install something else for the 'make
index' command to work properly?
