For one of my projects I need Perl to access data from a database. SQLite3 would be perfectly suitable for my needs, except for the fact that by default SQLite does not know my national characters. For example, a

This is my first bout with FreeBSD, having decided to give a non-Linux *nix a whirl (I've installed a dual-boot setup on a laptop, but I'm trying to learn the ropes first on a VM; I've downloaded the .vhd file.)

I think I might have solved the Open vSwitch issue that some people have been having (including myself).
So, since Open vSwitch was broken for me anyway I decided to do a little "hacking" of the files in the ports tree for OVS. I noticed that the Makefile configures OVS to be built with shared...
I have recently installed mlterm on my system since it's the best (if not the only) terminal emulator with decent Arabic/RTL support (tried urxvt, but it doesn't play well with Arabic). I use mlterm because my main IRC client is irssi and mlterm works nicely with that in terms of Arabic...

Over the past few years have spent a significant amount of time (seemingly endless) on port/package maintenance tasks. It seems that we should be able to:
100%: Use pkg for any/all installs and maintenance tasks (if no custom config options are required) -or-

when installing firefox from packages or ports you will be presented with this as part of the pkg-message.
