I had never thought that packages were a better option for tiny
machines like mines. But that could really be the case, since I always
fear the moment my Intel Atom has to update big ports like gcc, which
is required by...

# pkg info -r gcc

ouch, libvpx again!

So, with packages, no more gcc nor bash, is that right?

Thanks for the tip,
