Have you tried building with an src.conf file that includes:
It' not a matter of `kindergarten or not', but a matter of providing a
predictable `base system' by default and all the knob and documentation
to customize it at will. That's why you can find a lot of customization
options in the manpage of src.conf(5).
For example, on a `production server' that is a bit limited in space,
and doesn't really need compilers, debuggers, profiling tools, or three
different firewalls, I would probably build with:
I would also use WITHOUT_TOOLCHAIN=yes during `make installworld' runs,
to skip installing all the gcc, g++ and debugger tools.
The default `base system' still installs all these parts, but you are
definitely *not* obliged to always install all of them.
