Default Ran make update and the system decided to install Gnome?


I'm quite new to NetBSD though I am familiar with FreeBSD and OpenBSD; I am having a strange issue on my Sun SPARC box with no graphics card.

I followed the NetBSD documents:





In order to update the packages that I built from pkgsrc, I went to /usr/pkgsrc

then ran:

make update
as described in the documentation.

I started the whole process by first upgrading from version 6.0 to 6.0.1 again by using the documentation and that went fine; then updated the pkgsrc tree via CVS and now the packages.

I'm wondering if I did something wrong or if there was a better way to update by using a tool similar to portupgrade or portmaster etc....

It looks like currently there are a bunch of things which are being installed which were not there before either?

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?

The box should basically be used as a bare bones server without any graphical interfaces and doesn't need them installed as I only run:


on the system.

Thanks in advance for any help!
