I use a mix of ports and packages. I keep the downloaded packages
stored at the machine.
PKGDIR is defined. So, I use
pkg_add -r --keep PackageName
to download and install the package.
When I then compile a port, I will not be able to install it as
PKGDIR is defined and used as the directory of the current port.
Basically, I get then the error message that pkg-descr cannot be
I have to undefined PKGDIR to run a successful make install.
Is this behaviour intenteded?
