Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought that when installing a
port it would
also update any dependencies. For example, I want to install xfce
port, but it failed apparently on esound. So I then went to
by itself by it failed with the message that libtool is out of
date. So I used pkg_delete on the old libtool and then installed
the new libtool port, and
now xfce installs just fine because esound also installs fine.
I thought stuff like this got updated by installing from the
port? This is the
first time this sort of problem has happened to me, and I have
of the ports just to see what some of these programs are.
Well, "updating" a port isn't something the ports system deals with
every well. It tries to *install* the dependencies if it can't find
them. Libtool seems to break under these conditions, but it's the only
thing I've run into that does. Other ports have simply installed
multiple versions of the port.
