Default Getting individual source tarballs from pkgsrc collection

When compiling source from pkgsrc is there a way to get the individual code of a program without the need of downloading the whole pkgsrc tarball? When unpacked, the pkgsrc collection takes over 200MB which can be quite a bit of space on old machines (like in my case) or VM.

You can view the port by looking through the CVSweb frontend. i.e


I know CVSweb does provide a "download this folder" function but it does not seem to be enabled for this install.

Perhaps you can use anon-cvs to download it?


Rather than grabbing the whole thing, just download from the folder you need.

Thank you, that's a right idea. I hope when I run 'make' inside the downloaded source folder, it will follow all dependencies?

It could be tedious if the package you wish to build has more than a few dependencies. An alternative would be be build on a faster machine (?cross compile?) and then install the packages to the older, slower machine.
