Sorry for the inconvenience.  Chance of typos in templates, the navigation header should be functional for most versions of the handbook.
Potential remains for unforeseen breakage primarily in the handbook portion of the wiki.
Notice will be up until above verified and no other troubles found from recent modifications.

The pkg_delete command can be used to uninstall either a package or a port from within Ports Jail. If you include the -x switch, you don't have to give the full name and version of the software. Be sure to give enough of a name that you don't inadvertently uninstall other software matching the name:

# pkg_delete -x kopete

If the software has other applications that depend upon it, pkg_delete will refuse to uninstall it. If you wish to override this setting, use the -xf switch to force the delete.
