A freshly-built version in HTML is at:
Nice, nice. Found some things that might need a look at though (and have
made some brave attempts too).
http://www.itstud.chalmers.se/~eriwik/pkgsrc.diff Fixes some formulation
and changes Pentium IV to Pentium 4.
http://www.itstud.chalmers.se/~eriwik/pkgsrc-mailinglist.diff Is an
attempt to fix the links to the pkgsrc mailing-lists (I have absolutely
no idea how they are supposed to work but this seem to be correct) and
removes old entries for FreeBSD ports mailing-lists.
Some other things that I don't know how to fix:
In section 4.5.2 there is a note saying: "It should be noted that
``Extracting [the] complete dependency database'' does indeed take a
while." Is that only the first time it's run (or after each update of
the pkgsrc-tree)? Users might not want to use it if it takes a lot of
time every time.
In section 220.127.116.11 references are made to the previous section which
does not really make much sence. "As with the last section, this section
makes an assumption that you have a working Internet connection." Does
that refer to 4.4 or 4.5.2?
Lastly there is a lack of consistency when using the (R)-symbol after
pkgsrc. Having looked quickly in the pkgsrc guide I've seen no usage of
it at all, but in the DF handbook it is used sometimes, and sometimes not.
