I'm trying to install devel/subversion from pkgsrc on my NetBSD 5. I removed all the options: PKG_OPTIONS.subversion= -apache22 But it always needs apache and apr (this is the result of make show-depends): From devel/subversion/DESCR: This is a meta-package. It installs no files, but it depends on all the Subversion components, including the base pacakge with the subversion client and server, the apache module, and four language bindings. And as obache@ says there is no apache22 option: gdt 14 /usr/pkgsrc/devel/subversion > make show-options Any of the following general options may be selected: apr1 sasl Enable SASL support. serf These options are enabled by default: apr1 These options are currently enabled: apr1 You can select which build options to use by setting PKG_DEFAULT_OPTIONS or PKG_OPTIONS.subversion. So I'm not sure what you think is wrong, unless you want to be able to build a metapackage that has all the language bindings but without the apache module. As obache@ pointed out, you can just build them individually. Adding options to metapackages is a tough call; it's not clear how many others would want all the language bindings and not the apache module. (Omitting samba from 12 places via options, that I can see, but fortunately there is no svn-smb package.) If you mean "the name devel/subversion is confusing, and really subversion-base should be called subversion and subversion should be called subversion-bindings", then you have a point, but IMHO the cost of change is more than the cost of confusion especially given that the DESCR files are accurate. I did add a hint to devel/subversion/DESCR making this more obvious.
