Thank you Mezz, for going through my makefiles and making it conform to the
the ports system. That was a very big help to me and an effort beyond
It gave me a new understanding of /files that I will pass on to the doc team
hopefully into the next version of porters handbook.
It's a shame that I can't use a script placed in /files to change rc.conf
deinstall. I really liked that. But i guess I will settle with a dull
pkg-message at the
end, like the rest of you...
Since I made the (simple) source Makefile, I would have liked to take
advantage of the
many predefined macros/variables i the port Makefile.
It seems strange to me, to pass them as a patch (like this: s|CC?= gcc|CC?=
How many of them if any, are passed on to the source makefile? Are there a
way to turn
them all on? if that: any documentation? (except the bsd.ports.mk file)
