BSD package and 10.3.x updates
Authored by: thinkyhead on Feb 26, '04 03:22:02PM

I don't know if I'd do this one. Isn't it possible that some of the BSD components are replaced by updates to Panther? Security updates are the ones I would be concerned about.

I'd suggest using Pacifist to extract any missing man pages you might need instead.

BSD package and 10.3.x updates

Pacifist has a "verify" option, which will report whether the the selected files exist on disk already with the correct permissions and with the same contents as in the package. That let me see that almost all almost all of the missing man3 pages were, in fact, simply missing; there were a dozen or so that had changed contents. When you go to install files using Pacifist, it warns you when you're overriting a existing file and lets you skip that one. All in all, it turned out to be a great tool for solving this missing man pages problem.
