8.2. pkg-install

If your port needs to execute commands when the binary package is installed with pkg add or pkg install you can do this via the pkg-install script. This script will automatically be added to the package, and will be run twice by pkg the first time as ${SH} pkg-install ${PKGNAME} PRE-INSTALL before the package is installed and the second time as ${SH} pkg-install ${PKGNAME} POST-INSTALL after it has been installed. $2 can be tested to determine which mode the script is being run in. The PKG_PREFIX environmental variable will be set to the package installation directory.
