I agree with you, this works on FreeBSD, but in DragonFly it seems this
don't work, i don't know why, it seems this is the same file...

Another problem is also when we want to search a port. On FreeBSD we can
do it with whereis <portname> or going to /usr/ports and do a make
search name=<portname>.
In DragonFly the whereis doens't work, why not, but make search failed
because of missing files (look at the attachment). Then how can i do a
make search ?
