A while ago I got fed up with using `make update' and
waiting for a *long* time for some packages (e.g. KDE)
to be reinstalled multiple times.
I've since been updating packages that are multiply
depended on by forcibly deleting them - `pkg_delete -f
foo' - and then reinstalling - `make' and `make
Everything has worked fine so far, but I'm not 100%
confident that this is a sound thing do be doing. Is
there any reason that this is not a sensible venture?
One other thing. The NOCLEAN option stops `make
from cleaning after installing, so would setting this
help with the make update problem? I.e. it would just
run `make install' multiple times and not `make'.
