How to install a patched version of a pacakge



  • There is a source patch for softflowd that fixes an issue with softflowd and  solarwinds flow collector
    Can I build the package from the patched source and then replace the softflowd binary on the live install?

    Building on the same version of FreeBSD as pfsense

    I realize there will be potential issues on future updates

    Should any of the build variables be different to a vanilla FreeBSD install.?

    I am a Long time user of NetBSD with no ports experiences and limited FreeBSD exposure beyond pfsense
