A week ago I did a buildworld and after rebooting I tried to start
either Firefox 2.0.04 and Thunderbird 126.96.36.199 as they are both standard
applications of my daily work. Both applications did not start, via
top(1) I recognized on both clients a "STATE ucond".
Well, I thought this could be due to a newer kernel and userland so I
simply recompiled both Firefox and Thunderbird - with no success. Both
installation processes get stuck in "===>> Building chrome's registry
... " and never come back.
I do have two other boxes running FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT, one i386 SMP and
another amd64 SMP and on both neither Firefox 188.8.131.52 nor Thunderbird
184.108.40.206 show that weird 'ucond' STATE in top(). I never dared
recompiling both applications so i can not say whether the problem is
related to the one box (UP).
Does anyone have recognized this problem? How to fix it? Without having
the specific port installed, how can I rebuild every dependency? If the
port is already installed, someone simply need to type 'portupgrade
-vrRf port", but is there any 'make' equivalent in the native
