Re: packages compiled from source

Many thanks too all who ansered, that's really helpful. I just had a hard time compiling lighttpd and php5 together, so wanted to save them as packages to spare me the headache in the near future.

Have read the ports man I see that I can change the PACKAGES in the environment, but how do I change the environment. Would I edit /etc/ make.conf at a guess?

Hi, trying to find out where the complete packge files are for the
packges that I compiled from ports. I wanted to save these somewhere

doesn't shed any light on this:(

They are not saved separately but you can create backups using
pkg_create -b.

In addition, you can use 'package' (or 'package-recursive') target
instead of 'install' to create packages automagically. In that case
target directory is set by PACKAGES variable.

Have a look at ports(7) manpage for details.
