Errors with ports on 9.3..

Thanks for the update, I had the feeling the issue was from it being
to old. I have a question, not sure if you know, but I will toss it
out. As I mentioned I update using svn for both src and ports, and I
am curious to know if I can actually bring my src tree up to the most
current 10.x stable, recompile, and install and have it all run?
In the past with much older versions, I know file system changes and
such make it pretty hard to jump major revisions, so have a little bit
of fear about jumping from 9.x to 10.x, and possibly even to 11.x if
that is now stable. I am using ZFS, so I guess that would be one thing
that is outside the norm, but should be part of the base kernels now anyway.
Any input on upgrading would be most appreciated...

Two check out ports via svn and use the tag RELEASE_9_EOL and use that as your starting point . This is ports before the support for 9 was dropped . It's not up to date but it will work .Lastly you could use pkgsrc from netbsd not Joynet , and do a full rebuild of what you need . Pkgsrc also has a pkgsrc to ports conversion tool if you want the subsequent pkgsrc packages registered in a FreeBSD standard pkg dir . This would work if you haven't converted 9 to use pkgng .
