i'm opposing the packaging of base, yet i'd like to see file registration (also for what somebody might call "package": sendmail, bind, whatever, basically what we have as WANT_* or NO_* already), so that stale files can be removed and unneeded parts not be built.What about making things like bind and sendmail packages? Even more relevant would be non-blessed versions of GCC in my mind since they're large, slow to download and compile and most people will probably stick with whatever's in base.
I guess what I'm saying is that I also see disadvantages in slicing up
"base" into packages, but trimming stuff from base doesn't seem like too
bad an idea.
Is all of /src/games available as ports? Am I suggesting BSD blasphemy
by suggesting not including "hack" as part of a base install? (note that
I'm sure as heck not suggesting dropping fortune...)
