I hada VM running an older installation of FreeBSD 7.2. I recently got back to it and tried to install Cacti from the ports collection. I cvsup'd in an up-to-date ports collection, and did the usual "make, make install" for Cacti. During the "make install" process a dependency failed to build. I believe it was xcb-utils that failed to build because XCB was at version 1.2 and needed to be at 1.4. I couldn't get the issue resolved no matter what I tried. I ended up giving up.....later on I went through the "freebsd-update" process and upgraded to a newer version of 7.2. After that Cacti and all dependencies built and installed successfully. Was XCB upgraded when I did the freebsd-update process? Or what? I'm just trying to find out what happened..... Thanks!
