In src/BUILDING, we describe the various variables that influence the
behaviour of make(1) during the build. These are currently not
documented in the Guide, I believe.
I was wondering if somebody could add these to the chap-build chapter,
as 26.7.4 Setting variables in /etc/mk.conf
They could be written up as
Identifier for the build. The identifier will be
appended to object directory names, and can be consulted
in the &man.make.1; configuration file in order to set
additional build parameters, such as compiler flags.
This list does not need to be complete -- only the most commonly used
variables would suffice, with a pointer to src/BUILDING for details, I
If you have time to do this, please send me a patch against
chap-build.xml and I'll apply it.
I'm not even supposed to be here today!
