Bsd ports updating file
Since lsof is a program that runs with increased privileges, a security warning is shown.
During the building and installation of ports, take heed of any other warnings that may appear.
The preferred method for obtaining and maintaining the ports tree is Portsnap.
Users requiring local customization of ports (that is, maintaining additional local patches) will probably prefer to use Subversion directly.
This command also works in the lower level categories, such as /usr/ports/net.
Note that if a port depends on libraries or other ports, this will not fetch the distfiles of ports from another category.
Examples include www/firefox, security/gpgme, and mail/sylpheed-claws. A menu will be displayed at the beginning of a port compile when compile options are available. Alternatively, these can be set as environmental variables.
This section provides basic instructions on using the Ports Collection to install or remove software.
The detailed description of available make targets and environment variables is available in ports. As of mid 2012, the Free BSD Ports Project has migrated revision control systems from CVS to Subversion.
Refer to the manual page for your shell for instructions on how to set an environmental variable.
Certain ports provide an ncurses-based menu containing build options.
This set of files is used to compile and install applications on Free BSD.
