Default vsftpd port issue on FreeBSD 8.2 x64

Hi,

I installed the vsftpd port in FreeBSD 8.2 x64 only I think the port itself may have issues??

Standard install was performed:

Code:
cd /usr/ports/*/vsftpd 
make install clean
however, for whatever reason no binary was put into /usr/local/bin and additionally no startup script in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ ??

I then thought that perhaps it might be a bad build so I did this:

Code:
cd /usr/ports/*/vsftpd
make deinstall
make clean
make config
make install clean
during the build process though the actual system came up with /usr/local/bin empty.....


This was after updating/upgrading all local ports too meaning that I should have the lates SPEC and Makefile's.


Can anyone suggest anything?


Thanks

/usr/local/libexec/vsftpd is the binary... see pkg-plist

Ok I've checked it and seems so....??

However, there is no rc.d script for it to automatically start the service at boot either....

I don't get that.

Its known issue, You need to compile the package with RC_SCRIPT set to YES to have that RC script, truly stupid defaults for a package. I tried to contact the vsftpd maintainer to put RC_SCRIPT to YES by default but without any success.

Thanks for that but it didn't work, am I doing something wrong?


I changed the line in the Makefile to this:

Code:
OPTIONS=	RC_NG		"install RC_NG script"		on \
		VSFTPD_SSL	"Include support for SSL"	off \
		PIDFILE		"unofficial support for pidfile"	off
so the RC_NG script I set to on.

But still nothing.......

It does not work that way mate

Do that:
1. # cd /usr/ports/ftp/vsftpd
2. # make config (select YES here)
3. # make clean build deinstall install clean
