Is there a difference in allocation of package building resources
between v5 and v6 stable versions?
I use both a v5 and v6 stable box. The v6 box is paid attention to a
lot more closely, the v5 box is a once in awhile test machine. I
noticed yesterday that portupgrade -aP on the v5 box led to most of the
updates happening via package, whereas the v6 box is building most of
them via ports.
