extracting pkg-message for FreshPorts

FreshPorts wants to extract the pkg-message. It is useful information.

The problem: how we I populate pkg-message when it is not in the repo?

For example, files/pkg-message.in.

The following outlines the solutions and problems I have encountered.

I'm looking for suggestions.  Things I would like to avoid if possible:

* fetching distfiles
* building (other ports)
* installing packages

I will go through a few different situations:

1 - pkg-message exists in the ports tree

[dan_at_empty:/usr/ports/sysutils/zfsnap] $ make -V PKGMESSAGE
/usr/ports/sysutils/zfsnap/pkg-message

Yes, that file exists, we can use it.


2 - pkg-message does not exist

[dan_at_empty:/usr/ports/sysutils/mkjail] $ make -V PKGMESSAGE
/usr/ports/sysutils/mkjail/pkg-message
[dan_at_empty:/usr/ports/sysutils/mkjail] $ ls -l 
/usr/ports/sysutils/mkjail/pkg-message
ls: /usr/ports/sysutils/mkjail/pkg-message: No such file or directory
[dan_at_empty:/usr/ports/sysutils/mkjail] $

In this case, there is no .in extension, and we ignore it. There is 
nothing to be obtained

3 - files/pkg-message.in exists

[dan_at_empty:/usr/ports/sysutils/bsdstats] $ make -V PKGMESSAGE
/var/ports/usr/ports/sysutils/bsdstats/work/pkg-message

How do I get that file created with minimal work?

For example:



Compare with:

[dan_at_empty:/usr/ports/sysutils/anvil] $ make -V PKGMESSAGE
/var/ports/usr/ports/sysutils/anvil/work/pkg-message

if /work occurs in the path, I know it does not exist yet.

Here's how I create it.  This was one approach:

[dan_at_empty:/usr/ports/sysutils/anvil] $ make -V PKGMESSAGE
/var/ports/usr/ports/sysutils/anvil/work/pkg-message

Downside: this fetches distfiles



4 - flavored pkg-message

[dan_at_empty:/usr/ports/x11/nvidia-hybrid-graphics] $ make -V PKGMESSAGE
/var/ports/usr/ports/x11/nvidia-hybrid-graphics/work-default/pkg-message

NOTE the work-default - this indicates a flavor is involved.

This does a lot of building. A lot.  That's not good.

Is there a better way?

Thank you.
