>Description:
I have reported this as a bug to the FreeBSD team some time ago but I didn't receive any responce on it. I have 1150 packages currently installed. If I have to upgrade it using portupgrade every time the database rebuilds for 12+ hours this is unacceptable to a modern operating system. Maybe some improvements can be made of how pkgdb tracks dependencies. Package managent of the pkg_add, pkg_delete etc. is also slow because of many installed packages. It would be good if something could be done to fix this since I think it's a serious issue.
>How-To-Repeat:
Install 1000 packages on FreeBSD system. Then try to manage the packages using portupgrade, pkg_add, pkg_delete whatever of the available for FreeBSD package management systems
>Fix:
I don't know of If there is I would be happy to know
