ports-mgmt : portmaster
Manage your ports without external databases or languages
This script uses the existing ports infrastructure to track dependencies, and to keep those dependencies up to date. Because it is written in /bin/sh, it needs no other languages installed. Portmaster has the following features: * User can specify the port to upgrade (or install) either by directory in /usr/ports, or by directory in /var/db/pkg * Updates and repairs (as needed) entries for dependencies in both +CONTENTS and +REQUIRED_BY files for both the port that is being updated, and any ports that depend on it * Runs make config recursively through all ports before starting build * Recursively checks and upgrades (or installs) all dependencies * User can force upgrades of all dependent ports * Runs make clean before starting the build (can be disabled) * Offers the user the opportunity to delete stale distfiles * Supports /usr/ports/MOVED * Supports non-default settings of PORTSDIR and PKG_DBDIR * Interactive update mode (prompts for each update) * Option to rebuild port, and ports that depend on it * Options to make packages out of installed, and new ports * Option to clean out stale port dependencies * Downloads distfiles in the background
