 make.conf/make world script
Author: David Heaps

HI,

for those of you interested in fixing the make update problem, I did find a fix for it, I decided to do some testing and got it running, so I thought I post my setup here and advise those interested.

the only changed to make are in the /etc/make.conf.

depending on how you have your supfiles setup you will not have to specify the SUPHOST. I found that once removed from make.conf, the make update command worked without problems.
make update uses the cvs servers you have specified in your supfile.

below is listed what i have in my make.conf for cvsup section.

Notice as well I have included the configuration entries which update my ports and docs as well as stable.

SUP_UPDATE= yes
SUPFILE=/root/make/stable-supfile
PORTSSUPFILE=/root/make/ports-supfile
DOCSUPFILE=/root/make/doc-supfile
SUPFLAGS= -g -z -L 2

I hope this helps others out there, as I am still pretty new to freebsd, and thought I would share what I found.

Cheers

David
