I would respectfully like to request that the CPPFLAGS+= lines in Makefiles
be separated on a per-category or per-option basis. For example, I like
the -DSECURE and -DMSDOS_ROOT options in init, but I don't like -DALTSHELL;
I want it to just drop into single-user mode (the code for which fails
compilation without -DALTSHELL, by the way) and not ask me any questions.
As a result, I end up changing my compile time options, but I have to
completely rearrange their order. I cannot just stick a comment in there
and be done with it.
This gets annoying to have to do every time init's Makefile appears to get
I will be submitting a PR for the fact that compiling init without -DALTSHELL
