I am sort of put off by "lite" versions in general, even have WITHOUT_SVNLITE=yes in /etc/src.conf .
I'd put WITHOUT_SENDMAIL=yes in /etc/src.conf as well but am attracted by having certs in /etc/mail.

I originally partitioned hard disk using gdisk on a USB 2.0 stick installation of FreeBSD 9.2_STABLE.

This installation includes subversion from ports, but then I found re(4) didn't work with Ethernet on new motherboard.

I just had a thought, now that I have wi-fi working, Hiro 50191 USB adapter with rsu(4).

Maybe I could chroot to FreeBSD 9.2-STABLE on USB stick after doing a null mount of /usr/src (also ports and doc) and establishing Internet connection?

Presumably this would then use rsu(4) driver which is only on FreeBSD 10-stable and HEAD and not in GENERIC kernel config?
