recently I installed a new desktop using FreeBSD-10.1-RELEASE image.
After adding some (>1000) packages from default pkg repository, I was
able to start working with kde4, libreoffice, firefox ...
I then tried to switch the gs port (print/ghostscript9) to the more
recent agpl-gs (print/ghostscript9-agpl), both packages are available
in the standard repository:
$ pkg install print/ghostscript9-agpl
This command first suggested to remove all ghostscript dependent stuff
(more than 50 packages , including most of kde4) before installing the
new ghostscript port.
Letting pkg do its job would not help. Reinstalling www/kde4 would
first replace the new ghostscript version with the former one.
So, at last everything would be like before.
Is there a recommended procedure to solve this problem?
$ pkg set -a -o print/ghostscript9:print/ghostscript9-agpl
before trying to install print/ghostscript9-agpl did not help.
Another example would be switching database server from mysql to mariadb.
For now, I'm only able to modify /etc/make.conf, rebuild *all* related
packages, create an additional local package repository from these and
tell pkg to prefer installing packages from there.
