I was installing wget like so:

# cd /usr/ports/ftp/wget
# make install clean

And then the interface popped up asking for build options.

I made a mistake in build options

# make install clean
===>  wget-1.13.4_1 GNUTLS and OPENSSL are mutually exclusive, enable at most one of them.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/ftp/wget.

How can I go back to edit the build options? When I try to rebuild make install clean or make install it keeps coming back to Error code 1.

Have you tried an uninstall? – soandos Jul 27 '12 at 3:48

Use either...

  • make rmconfig to remove the saved configuration so you can start over; or
  • make config to open the configuration menu again (prefilled with the build options you have already selected) so you can deselect one of the mutually exclusive options.
