Re: Compiling 6.0_RC1 fails
Thanks for your response,

Actually I did NOT mean to update the packages to the LATEST versions.
I had a pain story with FreeBSD ports.
But I only want to rebuild (from source) all installed packages QUARTERLY.
For example, the last pkgsrc tree is pkgsrc-2012Q2.
End of Q3 is not arrived.
There might be some latest versions for each individual package,
which are newer than ones in Q2.
But I do not consider that; I only concern with pkgsrc in each quarter.
``make update'' will do this but it is dangerous.
(If I am wrong, please correct me.)

I have only one machine to get updated, pkgin not required.
And AFAIK nih currently supports only binary updates.
So both should not be my choices.

Does pkg_chk update all packages to the latest for each individual package?
Or it does update to ones given quarterly in pkgsrc tree?
(I opt the later.)
