No joy. Even though I installed the lzip-1.13 package from the FreeBSD
ftp site, the pkg utility does not show it as installed.

And, per the original post, lzip is a dependency for other ports, hence
this problem.

One of the top Google hits was to my email to the port maintainer last week:

http://www.opendevs.org/iwzku/freebsd-port-lzip-1-14.html

I have not heard from the FreeBSD port maintainer, but someone did reply
with a URL pointing to lzip-1.14.tar.gz on a Fedora site.

In the unlikely event that Fedora's file locations and dependencies are
the same as FreeBSD's, is it really as simple as just dropping that .gz
file in /usr/ports/distfiles?

thanks
