I would like to use the ports tree to install and manage packages inside my
home directory. I tried setting:
to directories within my home directory but then I get error messages like
$ make build
===> Creating some important subdirectories
mount_nullfs: Operation not permitted
when trying to build/install ports.
Any suggestions on how to use ports completely avoiding root?
(I rented space on a server and have permission to install binaries
but do not have root access)
PS I used portsnap to get the ports tree and the server is running FreeBSD 9.1)
