Default Buildworld make.conf options

This might sound like a silly question but if i do a buildworld/installworld with

NO_BIND=true #Just using bind as an example

in my make.conf, will it actually remove the bind stuff from the previous buildworld/installworld I did without that option set?

No. You will have to hack bind out yourself.

Setting the NO_* knobs in make.conf (or src.conf in FreeBSD 7+) just tells the build system to not build or install those bits. However, the build system does not delete items during normal operation.

However, you can use the delete-old and delete-old-libs targets to delete old binaries and libraries. I believe these will check the NO_* knobs and delete those items as well, but I have never tested that.

Ports like bind and various mail ports generally have a 'REPLACE_BASE' option you can set in the build. This tells the port to put the port files in /usr/bin etc - replacing the base version.
