Default package questions

I know it's vacation seasons so this is a shout-out to the first person who knows what's going on here. I just got use to pkg_add a few weeks ago when I was using plain old FreeBSD at the command-line but for the pass few weeks this set-up is all about making a real effort to use PcBSD and now I see that files are everywhere compared to the tiny FreeBSD, i miss it already. I tried to install GNOME but dependencies needed dependencies, so I drop the ball on that one, but I did learn how to use pkg_add well but not to oblivion. Just trying to give you a clearer picture.

My question is what do GNOME want and where do he want me to put it? Also is bonnie++-1.03e installed correctly? One more thing, I found this at FreeBSD download, is this the same kind of program "bonnie++1.96_1.tbz"? ... I can't find it at the official ZCAV site. Should I install this one since it got a higher version number? Sorry for being such a noob but I'm in it for good now and I want to complete this process and record those numbers. I found my PRIMARY now I want to know the slices, and than I'm optimize after I optimize. Any way if some one could explain this to me I will never forget. I don't know why it say this when the directory already got the file name in it:

/Programs/Gnome/lib/liblzma.so.5: ... this dir has a liblzma.so.5 already

And what is XZ_5.0 and of what?

/usr/lib/libarchive.so.5 ... libarchive.so.5 is in here already


This is what I got when I tried to install gnuplot-4.4.3.tar.gz:

bash-4.1# tar -zxvf /var/AAA/gnuplot-4.4.3.tar.gz -C /usr/tools/gnuplot
/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: /Programs/Gnome/lib/liblzma.so.5: version XZ_5.0 required by /usr/lib/libarchive.so.5 not defined

I installed bonnie++-1.03e.tgz first, and this is what I got:
bash-4.1# ./configure

That's fine! It makes good since to me. Sorry about that ocicat. Anyway, your chosen title along tells me to google and study how the package system work. I never thought about that until now. I do it for everything else. One thing I learn about BSD, every tiny step can be a major learning process. By time we get to the good part it be history with a whole new set of rules (technologies) to start from scratch all over again.. I hope I don't crack.

PcBSD pbi system install has no comparison to FreeBSD. PBI install where they want to so you can have one click install - I believe it suppose to mimic the way OS X installs work.

tbz files are pre-compiled package files for FreeBSD. I don't think you are suppose to mix and match FreeBSD packages with PcBSD PBIs. If you're gonna use PcBSD it best to stick with there methods I'd think.
