Sorry if this message if off-topic for this list; I couldn't
find a general-purpose pkgsrc help or discussion list.
Does pkgsrc on MacOS X still require the use of a UFS filesystem,
or will it work OK on HFS+ these days? I couldn't find any
information on www.pkgsrc.org regarding this...
I just recall last time I tried using it, I had some weird problems
that I wound up chalking up to case-insensitivity issues, but this
was some time ago, and I vaguely recall there being an effort to clean
up some of the conflicts a while ago.
I would just try it out, but I don't want to leave stuff all over
the HD if it winds up not working well - it's my wife's mac, and
the prime directive of marital harmony is Thou Shalt Not Screw Up
Thy Wife's Computer. :)
