I'm sort of new to trying to keep up-to-date with ports,
and got confused by the recent gettext upgrade... a portupgrade
===> Checking if devel/gettext already installed
===> An older version of devel/gettext is already installed (gettext-0.12.1)
You may wish to ``make deinstall'' and install this port again
by ``make reinstall'' to upgrade it properly.
If you really wish to overwrite the old port of devel/gettext
without deleting it first, set the variable "FORCE_PKG_REGISTER"
in your environment or the "make install" command line.
*** Error code 1
It looks like I can/should upgrade all ports that depend on gettext with
portupgrade -rf gettext # ?
But what if I don't want to upgrade everything? Can I do:
pkg_deinstall -fP gettext\* # safe? keeps shared libraries?
