Hi again,

In freebsd if you do "make fetch" it's supposed to get all
required distfiles first . That is handy if you're on a home
modem. But when I try make fetch in netbsd it only gets
the first distfile, and not the dependent ones.

Is there a makefile target to get "all" the dependent distfiles
so that it can then be built later in a second step?

If no target then are there other ways or methods that
people practice for getting around this problem?

Thanks all,
