I hope I'm not misunderstanding you, but can't you just compile the port by cd'ing into /usr/ports/net/kmerlin, then typing make install

you need to have ports collection installed on local machine, and then cd /usr/ports/needed_port/
make install clean
this comand will get sources, compile it and install on your system.

So you have no /usr/ports/net/kmerlin directory?

It's time to update your ports collection! Readup on CVSUP from the handbook as this will detail how to do it correctly!

No i don't have /usr/ports/net/kmerlin
But I'll update my ports collection, with CVSup as soon as I will read the doc.

ThankYou Smilie .
