Can this be tricked into merging multiple installed versions of a port ?
I have 2 python versions installed :
The python-2.3.5_1 is only required by (pkg_info -R python-2.3.5_1):
I want to try forcing those to use python-2.4.3 . Can this be done using
portmaster ? It looks similar to the '-o' option. But (as expected)
portmaster -o lang/python python-2.3.5_1 wants to build and install
python-2.4.3 and bombs out when it finds out it is already installed.
I can of course set FORCE_PKG_REGISTER, but I think a small check
upfront to the -o option makes sense (skip building/installing the 'new'
port when it is already installed).
What do you think ?
