If it's been a few months since you last updated your ports then no
the koffice 1.5 package won't work for you. what version of FreeBSD
are you running and if you have not updated your ports in months you
better read /usr/ports/UPDATING becouse you will have to delete all
installed ports/packages and reinstall them. This is why:
AFFECTS: all ports using libtool as part of the build process
AUTHOR: ade at FreeBSD.org
The way in which ports that require libtool to build has been
completely reworked to bring the ports system in line with other
environments, such as Linux, and pkgsrc.
devel/libtool13 no longer exists. devel/libtool15 has been modified
to (a) install in the canonical locations and (b) remove a number
of long-standing FreeBSD-specific patches that resulted in a very
different libtool than is present on other systems.
The main visible change will be that a large number of ports have
had their plists modified (we now install libtool .la archives)
and, as such, PORTREVISIONS have been bumped on ~2000 ports (roughly
1/7th of the tree).
Unfortunately, there is no simple upgrade path. Short of removing
all packages and reinstalling from scratch, the only other viable
alternative would be careful use of portupgrade. Given the large
number of different ways in which libtool is used by other ports
in the tree, this is a process that is likely to vary considerably
from system to system, and as such, folks should be very mindful
of running automatic updating software, such as portupgrade, making
extensive use of the -n flag (and equivalents for other updaters)
to see what will actually be rebuilt, before actually performing
The good news is that the system now in place will make the handling
of libtool-using ports considerably easier going forward.
AFFECTS: users of lang/perl5.8
AUTHOR: tobez at FreeBSD.org
lang/perl5.8 has been updated to 5.8.8. You should update everything
depending on perl. The easiest way to do that is to use
perl-after-upgrade script supplied with lang/perl5.8. Please see
its manual page for details.
AFFECTS: users of textproc/expat2
AUTHOR: kuriyama at FreeBSD.org
Users of expat2 (and its many dependencies) should do the following to
properly update expat2 and all of its dependencies:
portupgrade -rf textproc/expat2
