Thanks for the suggestion, it allowed me to create an INDEX.db. However, I
still have a problem compiling most, if not all ports. For example, below
are sample outputs for "devel/libltdl15" and "databases/postgresql7."
===> Configuring for libltdl-1.5.8
/usr/ports/devel/libltdl15/work/libtool-1.5.8/libltdl/config.guess: No such
file or directory
===> Configuring for postgresql-7.4.5
No such file or directory
Any port I try to install gives me a similar error regarding config.guess.
In searching, I haven't found anybody else who has experienced the same
problem. Any ideas?
