Subject:   Crypto missing after FreeBSD-Update to 6.2-RELEASE
Message-ID:  <>

I've been using freebsd-update for some time now and it's been fantastic. I
recently used Colin's upgrade script[1] to upgrade to 6.2-RELEASE, but it seems
that the crypto distribution is now missing from my system.

With previous versions of freebsd-update I would have used --branch, but later
versions this option is omitted. What's the safest way to get freebsd-update to
recognise that I need the crypto libraries and install them?

PS On a side note, what happened to the IDS option? I'd like to use it to
exclude files in a backup script. If you have a suggestion for nice alternative,
please let me know :-)

Many thanks,
