package that require user interaction are marked with IS_INTERACTIVE=yes,
and if you set BATCH=YES in your /etc/mk.conf, these packages are skipped.
Of course it would be nice to decrease the number of interactive packages,
You will face another problem when you simply compile things starting at
pkgsrc root: conflicts. A more proper way is to install a package, build a
binary package, then deinstall everything, and go to the next pkg. The
soon-to-come bulk targets will do that.
is the output of the last bulk build, of the 70 unpackages packages,
quite a number are interactive (not all, though!)
