Hi,
I upgraded from XFree 4.0.3_3 to 4.1.0_4 after updating the ports tree =
with
cvsup. When I tried to 'make install' in the XFree86-4 directory it =
didn't
work and I did a 'make deinstall' which wasn't really successful as it =
didnt
find all the directories it needed. After that the 'make install' =
worked.
My general question is: Why does cvsup simply overwrite the packing list =
of
the old version and thus doesn't let me uninstall the port cleanly?
How is the updating procedure supposed to be done correctly (preferrably =
for
ALL the ports I installed)?

Thanks in advance,
Volker Sturm
