The two annoying, interactive ports, net-snmp4 and mod_php4 actually

now have ways to make them non-interactive, and we can take care of
adding optional 'sub-packages' to mod_php4 ourselves; we don't have
to make the user do that.

Part way through, this script will bail out and prompt you to install some

ports. This can take a long time (hours), and you want to be able to see what's
going on, right?
So, just cd to /usr/ports/misc/emulab-boss/ and run (as root) a 'make install'.
There are a few things you'll need to know about the ports:
* Installation of the mysql323-server port will fail if the name returned by
'hostname' doesn't resolve.
* The php4 port will bring up a funky menu system to let you choose some
features to enable and disable. Enable 'mhash' and 'xmlrpc', and
leave the rest alone.
* The snmp port asks all kinds of silly questions that don't matter, since
we're not going to be running snmpd on boss. Just take the defaults.
When you're done, re-run the boss-install script.
Like the ops-install script, boss-install sets up paswordless sudo for anyone

# These are for the mod_php4 port
# This prevents any ports from trying to run interactively - some, like the
# net-snmp port, ask silly questions without this option.
