I choose 'Custon Installation' and item 5 Distributions and then item
4 Developer which I have done for many years now. :-) So there may
some changes to the installation-process which is differen from 7.0.

ls -l /etc/src.conf
ls: /etc/src.conf: No such file or directory

So this file probably needs to be installed as part of a install with
the above mentioned entry in order not to stop buildworld  if lib32 no
longer is installed, unless chosen, during install.

Is this a post-configuration option?

Thank you for your pointers. My make.conf can probably celebrate it's
5'th anniversary with minor changes to CPUTYPE and commenting -O2 out.
I'll create src.conf accordingly.


When lenity and cruelty play for a kingdom,
the gentler gamester is the soonest winner.
