Wouldn't it be great, if /etc/make.conf disappeared completely? To be replaced by /etc/src.conf for buildworld/kernel stuff. And /etc/ports.conf for ports building stuff. With no linkage of any kind between the two, with all the "magic" hidden in /usr/ports/Mk and /usr/share/Mk. Maybe I'm dreaming, but wouldn't it make things a lot simpler in the long run? One could set all the weird and wonderful CPU* variables they want in /etc/ports.conf, and leave /etc/src.conf as generic as possible, without worrying about how one affects the other. Then you get a nice optimised app installation env, with a nice stable base. Seems like the next logical progression now that src.conf has appeared. :) -- Freddie Cash fjwc...@gmail.com _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
