Thanks vermaden. I will read your links after I fix the latest problem I'm having

As an example, on Slackware I can download anything I want and compile and package it. As long as I get all the dependencies there is nothing to stop me. Now suppose on Net or FreeBSD I want to get the -2 version of something because I like it more than the newer ones. How do I do this and make a clean job of it? If the ports tree has the latest version, can I get some earlier version and not cause problems for myself? An example is claws-mail. I like to stay a few version back and let other people break instead. I see mucho problem reports on new claws-mail releases, while I'm happily running 3.2.0 with zero problems for a few years...
