    I just noticed that on our older freebsd servers (pre-6.2) when something is trying to "make" we get the following error:

    'On FreeBSD before 6.2 ports system unfortunately can not set default X11BASE by itself so please help it a bit by setting X11BASE=${LOCALBASE} in make.conf.
    On the other hand, if you do wish to use non-default X11BASE, please set variable USE_NONDEFAULT_X11BASE.
    *** Error code 1


    This only seems to be happening now on our cpanel servers, as if something was updated on them but either its broken now or not fully updated. If I run makes on our non-cpanel boxes this error does not occur.

    Does anyone know what this is about?. Why is it happening now, we didnt see it a few months ago and it seems to be only when "make" runs, especially during upcp when it
    tries to do its updates of things like exim, mysql, etc...

    Yep...started about a month ago. Has to do with the way ports are called from cpanel by the looks of it.
