Does my proxy server or FreeBSD OS have problems?
It has been some time since I have used the FreeBSD system, a great system, but stubborn at times.
It seems to me that your proxy connections are working fine by what you wrote. By what you wrote it seems to me the package was added, configured, compiled, and installed as make clean is one of the last things you do when compiling/installing something on a *nix type os. I would think that if it is stuck at 99% during make clean then your package is alreadly added and working. As to why you cannot clean up your compile this is the enigma atm.
If you are actually trying to install a port or package with make clean then this may be where you are having a problem.
this is a fast and easy read to install a package.
when you cd /usr/ports/name-of-package
pkg_add -r name-of-package
This may install the package you desire a little easier. Please, as I said before it has been many years since I used FreeBSD, but, I hope this helps you.
