Guten Morgen Dirk!

WEll, yes, as i suspected it was partly due to my lack of sleep...i made the 
mistake of copying over my make.conf to the jails ... ^_^ 
I fixed that, but now i am trying to get portupgrade to work. I added/changed 
   ENV['PACKAGES'] ||= '/var/ports/packages'
  ENV['PKG_PATH'] ||= '/var/ports/packages/All'
  ENV['PKG_BACKUP_DIR'] ||= '/var/tmp/pkg_backup'
  ENV['PORTS_INDEX'] ||= '/var/ports/INDEX'

to the jails' /usr/local/etc/pkgtools.conf to make it work with the changed 
environment, but is still get stuff like that:

Fetching the ports index ... fetch: /usr/ports/INDEX-6.bz2: open(): Read-only 
file system
*** Error code 1

Stop in /basejail/usr/ports.
failed to fetch INDEX!

which i find a bit puzzling since i *did* add that last line to the 
pkgtools.conf precisely to avoid that happening!?

Another thing that puzzled me was that when i tried to make the flavor install 
portupgrade from ports it failed on ruby-db ... when i got in and did a make 
clean && make install by hand all worked like a charm. Worked around it using 
packages, but i find that to be suboptimal because it requires me to compile 
outside the jail when first setting up a new packagebuilder jail.

Can you enlighten me?

Thanks for your help and great work!
