I've just upgraded an existing FreeBSD 11.1 system with php56 to FreeBSD
11.2 and php72.
In order to do this, I used a mix of ports and packages to delete php56 and
all of the php56 extensions and replace them with php72 and php72
extensions. Everything is working now, but when I try to install anything
using pkg, it wants to reinstall php56 and serveral php56 extensions. This
happens for packages that don't have php56 as a dependency.
pkg install alpine
The following 11 package(s) will be affected (of 0 checked):
New packages to be INSTALLED:
Number of packages to be installed: 11
How do I tell pkg that I don't want php56 reinstalled?
