I'm trying out the freebsd 5.4 realm and so far I can see why people like it. It's very freaking secure even out of the box. Anyhow, I got my ports tree updated and I wanted to trim some of the object files to clear up some space. So, I did a:
cd /usr/ports; make clean
Make clean has been running forever cleaning up all sorts of junk. I mean, it's really taking a long time. That must've meant I had a lot of cruft in my ports tree. But I only installed lsof, wget, and pciutils. Why is it cleaning so much stuff and is that what you guys do after you install Freebsd to trim it? I'm open to criticism
. Thanks guys!
