That's interesting. I used sup to update my source and there are several
pkgsrc folders that have been updated in addition to htdig. Seems zlib,
lha, openssh, and a couple others have been updated. Now if only the curl
pkgsrc would be updated to 7.9.5 (with the same compile settings as the
current one (OpenSSL and ipv6 enabled)). ;)
I guess I have some compiling ahead of me.
Thanks for pointing out that there are new pkgsrces.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
