Description roland 2012-06-11 07:30:10 UTC
Information about upgrading ports is missing from: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/jails-application.html.

Using portmaster results in an error to backup the port:

mkdir: /usr/ports/packages: No such file or directory

===>>> Creating a backup package for old version libiconv-1.13.1_2

===>>> Cannot cd into /usr/ports/packages/portmaster-backup to create a package
===>>> Aborting update

===>>> Update for converters/libiconv failed
===>>> Aborting update


Add the following line to Handbook step 5 and Upgrading step 2:

ln -sf ../../s/packages usr/ports/packages

And add a small section/link to/about using portmaster to upgrade the ports.
How-To-Repeat: Install a Jail with nullfs according to http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/jails-application.html.

Build ports, update portstree, run portmaster -a
