    Build port but install dependencies with pkg

    I'm sometimes finding that I want to rebuild a port to enable a single option, like DEBUG, for example. Otherwise I generally use standard packages for everything else.

    pkg list origins?

    If I have some origins set for pkg using a command like.. # pkg set -o lang/php56:lang/php54 ... then how do I list and manage those settings? I.e. if I have a machine I am not familiar with, how can I check what options have been changed for pkg using the set command?

    www/squid: Fails to build

    I assume Squid 4.0.1 has make errors because it was released just a few days ago? 4.0.1 also does not seem to be in the package install, only 3+ is in pkg install. How long until it is usually in the pkg install database? I tried the usual manual download, config, make, etc. And it seems to have...
