Given the fact that the build target is presumably -j safe (as far as the ports system is concerned), it would be nice to have a BUILD_JOBS in Mk/bsd.port.mk similar to INDEX_JOBS that is already there. Port maintainers then can also set WITHOUT_PARALLEL (or USE_PARALLEL=NO etc) for ports that break by themselves (f.e. www/lynx, editors/vim). portmaster should then have no problem setting BUILD_JOBS on request. -- Mel Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules and never get to the software part. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
