What it does is is patch bsd.port.mk so that it calls back into portmanager allowing it to modify dependencies. I haven't checked the code, but since I've not seen any evidence of portmanager trying to modify dependencies in the last few years, I suspect that the support for the callback is just a stub. If that's true then using an unpatched file is harmless. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
