6.1. Build the Web Pages

Having obtained the documentation and web site source files, the web site can be built. In this example, the build directory is ~/doc and all the required files are already in place.

The web site is built from the en_US.ISO8859-1/htdocs subdirectory of the document tree directory, ~/doc in this example. Change to the build directory and start the build by executing make all.

% cd ~/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/htdocs
% make all


The web site build uses the INDEX from the Ports Collection and may fail if that file or /usr/ports is not present. The simplest approach is to install the Ports Collection.
