I am just preparing to upgrade from XFree86 3.1.1 to 3.1.2 and
the documentation recommends "using the NetBSD package tools".
Does anyone have the foggiest idea about where I can locate these?
"pkg_add" is the particular tool in question. When I installed
3.1.1 I just untarred the relevant stuff into /usr/X11R6, and I
could just do that again ....
Look for the packages tools on ftp.netbsd.org in
I had to change some of the Makefiles and rename some man page sources
to have it compile straight using make.
NOTE TO CURRENT-USERS WIZARDS: Should we update these files so it will
compile "out of the box?" (Sorry about the forwarding to
current-users, but it seemed like an easy fix that might help
especially folks installing XFree86). If this seems reasonable, I'll
send in the fix (where and in what form?).
