Well I downloaded and unpacked the latest pkgsrc.tar.gz I could find (dated
December 1) on the ftp site last night and it compiled kdelibs-2.2.1 fine this
morning. The rest of kde-2.2.1 seems to be going fine and should hopefully have
finished error free when I get home from work.
I assume that what I have is not the latest pkgsrc, but it'll do for now. I had
problems trying to get sup to work, but hopefully I should manage to figure
that out. Either way if this does work I'll probably wait for kde3 rather than
upgrade to 2.2.2.
Is libxslt a package? I saw a reference to it on at kde.org but couldn't find
it anywhere. I couldn't see it in textproc or even in the list of all packages
in either the pkgsrc I've currently got or the one I had before (November 17).
And it doesn't come up under the dependencies for kdelibs2 in the README file.
