msttcorefonts on FreeBSD and other stuff

For those who come from a Linux background, Debian and Ubuntu in particular, – msttcorefonts is named webfonts on FreeBSD.

I have just discovered that installing the port from package <i<removes firefox. (Don’t know if the same is observed when building from source.) Anyway, be warned: install webfonts before firefox, or you’ll waste another hour compling thing you shouldn’t be.

This is because portinstall cleans up by default. You can prevent this:

-w --noclean
Do not "make clean" before each build. See the -c option above.
-W --nocleanup
Do not "make clean" after each installation. See the -C option above.

So, I put an alias in my shell’s rc file and save time by sacrificing disk space.
