I've investigated more into changing the semantics of BUILD_DEPENDS to
match these of DEPENDS, and done most of the work. The patch at
includes that. There are a few packages that were not in a state to
convert them easily, these are:
These Packages access private parts of other pkgs' build process, which
should be fixed to not do so, and use the installed parts instead. As a
temporary solution until all these pkgs are fixed, I suggest that we
rename the BUILD_DEPENDS target in them to OLD_BUILD_DEPENDS, rename the
it in bsd.pkg.mk too, and as soon as these pkgs are fixed, remove
OLD_BUILD_DEPENDS. That way, we can switch over to the new BUILD_DEPENDS
Comments? (No patch yet - shouldn't be too hard)
Microsoft: "Where do you want to go today?"
Linux: "Where do you want to be tomorrow?"
BSD: "Are you guys coming, or what?"
