hey everyone...thought i'd stop in quickly and ask a question here.

Lucky for me, i've been able to put up a few *BSD boxes on our network here and move completely away from Linux (eventually that is).

What I have done is setup my own local cvsup server and synced the src tree for my production servers.

One thing I wanted to do on the same cvsup server was create packages on that server, then scp them over to the corresponding servers as needed. I read that you do this with make package.

I just have a couple of quick questions regarding make package.

Once I sync the ports tree on the 'build' box, if I were to go into the php4 port and type make package, being that php4 requires a bunch of dependencies, does it create a package for each package? For instance, would it create a package for apache? Or does it build it into one big thing...

I haven't tried it yet, but was curious how this particular function works.

Thanks everyone.
