============================================================
FOLLOW-UP --

I attempted a few more times yesterday, each time stopping on ORBit2 part of
the install.

However, I attempted again today, and make completed fully.  I successfully
installed several ports.

I hope  you won't mind a couple of questions:
1.  Is the purpose of the Runports Utilities to accomplish what the Release
Notes referred to as PCBSD port installations independent of the normal
ports?

2.  What exactly does the "make" command do?  Does it compile a database of
ports or install certain key ports into the PCBSD ports tree?

3.  Will the final release precompile this for us or require each of us to
run runports make in order to use ports (it takes a lot of time)

4.  What is up with the having to make numerous inputs at the blue options
screens -- that slows down the installation and requires the user to sit for
hours watching the install.
