Using freshports.org ports

João Salvatti
Hi all,

I'd like to know if I can use the ports at http://www.freshports.org/
in my OpenBSD system.

Thanks

Well, since it says 'FreeBSD', the answer is likely no.

They might work, by virtue of Free and Open not being entirely
dissimilar. OTOH, they might not, and do not expect anyone to help if
they break.

However, they are likely to provide some basis to work on.

These are FreeBSD ports.  Binaries from these ports may be used in some
circumstances, see compat_freebsd(8) for details.
