Fresh install of 3.6 and I downloaded ports from openbsd.org/././snapshots.

I tried to install screen and irssi. I get the same basic message with both of them. Not neccesarily with Glib. But from 'unknown option:W' down, is pretty much the same.

===> Building package for glib-1.2.10
Unknown option: W
Exactly one single package name is required at /usr/sbin/pkg_create line 165.

rm -f /usr/ports/packages/i386/all/glib-1.2.10.tgz

Come to find out, here is the common error with trying to install anything:

(line 1596 of /usr/ports/infrastructure/mk/bsd.port.mk)

As well as the other lines in the file. See above.

Ports and world need to be the same versions (i.e. don't use current ports on 3.6) :wink:

Just grab the 3.6 ports.tar.gz out of the 3.6 directory if you want to get started in a hurry or go ahead and update via CVS and grab the latest patches for base and update to stable (http://www.openbsd.org/stable.html) .

Yeah, yeah....I just realized that. *;o)
