BSD and Darwin derivatives "Overall - DesktopBSD is a pleasure to run and a breeze to install. It is an excellent choice for a new BSD user, a not terribly sophisticated computer user, or an old salt who just wants a good, solid, reliable desktop that won't take days to install and weeks to configure and just wants to get on with it."

Member since:

FYI: you cannot just do a "make install clean"; that does not resolve dependencies. Your looking to use "portinstall -N" which is part of "portupgrade":

http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=portupgrade&apropos=0&sekt...

Don't forget to CVSup and build an index before installing or upgrading software.

PS: somethings have changed about the index file (recently).

PSS: Been out of FreeBSD for a while. Double check on the mailing lists about the upgrade/install process. Sorry about being blunt; but you are missing a few steps. No disrespect intended.
