Upgrading perl 5.14 to 5.16 on FreeBSD 9.1 using portmaster

By | February 12, 2014

Update portstree!

portsnap fetch update

Portmaster users:

portmaster -o lang/perl5.16 lang/perl5.14

Conservative: (tried this, didn’t see to make Amavis work though)

portmaster -D p5-

Comprehensive (but perhaps overkill): (tried this, but took ages due to the constant OPTION menus popipng up

portmaster -r perl5-

Comprehensive and quite (but perhaps overkill): (worked like a charme, took less than 20minutes and no having to answer the OPTIONS menus.

portmaster -D -G -r perl5-

-D no cleaning of distfiles
-G prevents the recursive ‘make config’
-r rebuild the specified port, and all ports that depend on it

Maybe required due to “BSDPAN ports cannot be upgraded with portmaster” error?
