I see some docs in the CVS logs too.
The other reason, I didn't think of tools.mk is that it used with
"USE_GNU_TOOLS=" and GNU was misleading at least for byacc.
Before I start working on this ...
I don't see (but I may be overlooking this), some way for tools.mk to
check to see if system's version really exists. And if it doesn't exist
then use the BUILD_DEPENDS version.
Since we have discussed two methods: tools.mk and buildlink2.mk file for
flex: which one should be used?
It may be nice to do:
Also, I am curious: will the BUILD_USES_MSGFMT be replaced by a tools.mk
