#2 and #3 will work. The key is that the variable is set, not what it's set to. As a joke, you can do WITH_DEBUG=no in make.conf, and confuse the hell out of other sysadmins. Note that there may be additional port-specific debugging that would not be turned on by the global WITH_DEBUG, but you'll have to handle that on a port-by-port basis. -- Bill Moran http://www.potentialtech.com _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
