While trying to build /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver-9631 from a
freshly csup'd ports tree, it stopped with the following error:

===>  Installing for linux-expat-1.95.8
===>   linux-expat-1.95.8 depends on file: /compat/linux/etc/fedora-release - found

Should I simply csup and keep trying? Report a bug somewhere?
Or is there anything else I can do?

FreeBSD-6.2 Release. Generic kernel.

Please advise if a different list would be more appropriate.

Thanks, John.
