Is there a way to set the ``password'' (email address) for FTP when the
pkgsrc system has to grab distfiles?
This, or perhaps some kind of proxy system, is desirable. The problem is
that I have asystem with a lot of spare space and a static IP, but no
proper name. (I assign it a hostname within my home network, but the name
would be an invalid host for an email address in the FTP anonymous/ftp
So far, about the best that I can come up with is to export the
/usr/pkgsrc/distfiles from the ``nameless'' computer, and have my other
computer (with a proper internet hostname) do the distfile fetches.
Is there a better way, either in general or via pkgsrc variables?
Any help would be appreciated.
