> The problem with != is that is is evaluated in a subshell regardless of whether the results are needed, and it happens while the Makefile is first being read, before it tries to figure out which targets need to be processed. This is why setting libnet in BUILD_DEPENDS isn't being processed until after these commands are run (or fail to run, as above).
which is useless information to me. don't know why, been doing freebsd
for 10 years, been a port maintainer for.. ? 4? 5? don't remember.
still that is useless information, and doesn't make any sense.
doesn't tell me what,why, how, or when to replace what lines with what
yes, I can hard code it, but I don't really understand what those
(inherited lines) actually do.
