I know I can run "portsnap extract sysutils/portupgrade" ...or something
to that effect....but that will not "register" say for a "portsnap
update" after a new "portsnap fetch". This is what I will get for an
error if I try that:
[root at gv:/usr/ports]$ portsnap update
/usr/ports was not created by portsnap.
You must run 'portsnap extract' before running 'portsnap update'.
...is there any way I can only maintain a small portion of the ports
tree while still using portsnap (or should I not bother and just use
cvsup)? I'd like to keep the parts of the ports collection around that
I use, but not all of it...as this box has space issues.
