protecting compiler from accidental updates
I just bricked my complete pkgsrc installation. The reason seems to be
the update of devel/gettext-lib. I use lang/gcc34 as compiler. This has
a dependency on gettext-lib. So pkg_rolling-replace decided to update
gcc34. For doing so, it decided to install lang/gcc, i.e. GCC 2.95.
Halfway through, the build process fell apart and left me without a
working compiler. Although it might be possible to reinstall lang/gcc34
using the Sun Studio compiler, I think it's easier to just bootstrap
everything from scratch.
Question: Is there a way to protect the compiler (and maybe other
packages) from getting updated? And store this list of packages in a
place so that any method of update (manual "make update", pkg_chk -u,
pkg_rolling-replace) will not even attempt to touch any of these
packages or their prerequisites?
