I'm very new to pkgsrc. I installed DragonflyBSD and thought about
exploring pkgsrc instead of the usual binary package approach.
I like the idea, but I don't have a lot of drive space and most of
the files will go unused, causing wasted bandwidth, etc..
Wondering what some strategies are for downloading and updating only
a subset of packages?
For example, is there a way to download JUST shells/bash and then
compile it? (and presumably some way of tracking updates on only
the things I've installed) I'll never be using any X11 on this machine
Is there a way to tell it NOT to follow any dependancies? I'd really
rather decide for myself on what to install, kind of scared to
use it if there's a chance it'll install more than I bargained for.
Sorry if these are dumb questions.
