Post HOWTO: Fluxbox from GIT

This script will rebuild your Fluxbox to newest version from GIT repository:

Code:
#! /bin/sh

# if you use WRKDIRPREFIX in /etc/make.conf
# then modify these to your settings
PORTSDIR=/usr/ports
WRKDIRPREFIX=${PORTSDIR}/obj

cd /tmp
git clone git://git.fluxbox.org/fluxbox.git \
 || ( echo "\ninstall /usr/ports/devel/git port\n" && exit )
cd fluxbox && ./autogen.sh
cd /usr/ports/x11-wm/fluxbox
make depends
make extract
if [ -z ${WRKDIRPREFIX} ]; then
  SOURCEDIR=$( ls /usr/ports/x11-wm/fluxbox/work )
  rm -rf /usr/ports/x11-wm/fluxbox/work/${SOURCEDIR}
  mv /tmp/fluxbox /usr/ports/x11-wm/fluxbox/work/${SOURCEDIR} \
  || ( echo "\ncheck WRKDIRPREFIX\n" && exit )
else
  SOURCEDIR=$( ls ${WRKDIRPREFIX}/usr/ports/x11-wm/fluxbox/work )
  rm -rf ${WRKDIRPREFIX}/usr/ports/x11-wm/fluxbox/work/${SOURCEDIR}
  mv /tmp/fluxbox ${WRKDIRPREFIX}/usr/ports/x11-wm/fluxbox/work/${SOURCEDIR} \
  || ( echo "\ncheck WRKDIRPREFIX\n" && exit )
fi
make build deinstall install clean

Is there anything new enough to make it worthwhile?

Thanks.

(Hopefully, that didn't come out sarcastically.)

I added a tag to the topic, this is FreeBSD specific.

I think Scott means if there is anything new/worthwhile in the git repo.

If its that way, then currently propably very minor changes, as fluxbox 1.1 is still very fresh release.

Generally current git state does nto have anything with this howto, I am doing little cleaning on my boxes and I found that script so I added a mini howto.
