Shortcut for compiling from CD-ROMThis section shows you how to make a symbolic link which will make your port building from CD-ROM much faster.
That said, I couldn’t make this work. I think perhaps you also need the port skeltons. But I’m not sure. Good luck You may wish to refer to the FreeBSD Handbook to see how to install a port from CD-ROM.
Changing /etc/make.confAccording to the documentation in the handbook (see the link above), I added the following to /etc/make.conf:
PORTSDIR= /cdrom/ports DISTDIR= /tmp/distfiles WRKDIRPREFIX= /tmp
Creating the link
# mkdir /usr/ports # cd /usr/ports # mount /cdrom # ln -s /cdrom/ports/distfiles distfiles
Now all you need to do to build a port is:
# mount /cdrom # cd /usr/ports/net/isc-dhcp2 # make # make install
