I left something out when I explained that we were trying to build
Yum. We are looking to install RPM and Yum and use those to manage
our homegrown software and packages on FreeBSD. We're not looking to
manage anything other than our own software and applicable
Having said that, do you believe that portability will continue to be
an issue under these circumstances?
