FreeBSD 11.0 RELEASE
I have binary packages installed using pkg. Works great and fine in itself.
I have installed from source some ports as the options used in the binary version was not what I needed. Works great and fine in itself.
Mixing both as such works as advertised, but I'm...
I usually compile the pkg program from ports, using saved source. Hence, no binary pkg bootstrapping installation is ever needed when I use (personally) archived packages.
Usually, when I decide to use the "pkg install" command to retrieve a package not yet in my personal archives, the "pkg...
