Some commands in the different mechanisms you have available&n manage your ports source, can be used to help select which pack ages need updating when you install an update to a package.
About your 2nd question, I have no idea. I keep track of how to bu ild a system, keeping copies of config files, then I make backups file or data systems on an ongoing basis.
Re gc44. FreeBSD 7.2 comes with 4.2 already installed. Maybe you installed 4.4 on top of it, something got messed up, or an option must be set for both to co-exist. I don't know, but I would try to k eep with the version that came with the system ( just an unjustified

Question: Does the rebuild process examine the pkg_info results load up the directory appropriately?. or is it "one size fits all?"
Question: Does anyone have a solution for doing a general machin backup to one file? So that I can back the machine up and later, su bsequently, perform a simple restore. Because I've been using the
mac backups miss o experience. What's possib As for gcc44, I am fairly certain that it's actually broken -- that
