I assume you already have pkgsrc installed. Have a look at anyone of the
Makefiles (and maybe patches/) for the packages I referenced in my
For example, see chat/bitchx/Makefile.
In regards to the misc/kdepim3, you should try something there, like:
.if defined(KDEPIM_USE_PILOT) && !empty(KDEPIM_USE_PILOT:M[Yy][Ee][Ss])
. include "../../comms/pilot-link-libs/buildlink2.mk"
The above is just a guess. I don't know what it does to disable it. You
will have to read the docs or source for it.
