i'm trying to upgrade, then dist-upgrade an out-of-date bsd box
portsdb -Uu is failing...
Updating the ports index ... Generating INDEX.tmp - please
wait.."Makefile", line 57: Could not find bsd.port.options.mk
make: fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue
from what I've uncovered online:
something wants that file in /usr/share/mk
that file only exists in /usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.options.mk ( until
portsdb get upgraded itself ? )
has anyone experienced this in past ? can you offer pointers ? can i
just copy from /usr/ports/Mk , or will i run into hell from mismatched
versions of apps and source files conflicting with one another ?
