DESCRIPTION

The bsdadminscripts are a collection of scripts to deal with administrative tasks more conveniently. Look at the respective manual pages to find out more.

    BUILDFLAGS

Buildflags consists of a configuration syntax for the make(1) system normally stored in a file called buildflags.conf(1), a converter called buildflags.awk(1), which converts the configuration file into make syntax and a make file buildflags.mk(1), which can be included into make.conf(5) to use the buildflags system.

    DISTVIPER

The distviper script wipes outdated files from the distdir. For this it provides a fast mode that should be appropriate for most systems and a thorough default that will also yield satisfying results on a dedicated build machine.

    PKG_LIBCHK

The pkg_libchk(1) script uses pkg_info(1), ldd(1) and readelf(1) to find packages that are linked against missing libraries or libraries that reside in %%PREFIX%%/lib/compat and its subfolders.

    PKG_UPGRADE

The pkg_upgrade(1) script offers the possibility to perform binary only package maintenance similar to tools for the FreeBSD ports tree, but only requiring a local copy of the INDEX created by a build server.

    PKG_VALIDATE

The pkg_validate(1) script uses pkg_info(1) to check for ports with checksum mismatches or missing files.

    PORTCONFIG

The portconfig(1) script runs make targets on the same ports that portupgrade(1) would update.

    RCSTART

The rcstart(1) script allows you to handle rc.d(8) scripts on the fly without having to know the exact file name. Instead you select them by the PROVIDE keyword.

    UMA (Update MAnanager)

The uma(1) script offers locking and meta data updating services for ports and package maintenance.
