I reversed this like you suggest. I named it "USE_ABI_DEPENDS" and the
default is "yes".
Here is the patch for everyone's review:
1230 files changed.
I will commit the pkg_tools/pkg_install parts separately. And commit
pkgtools/revbump and pkgtools/pkglint separately.
To summarize the above patch:
RECOMMENDED is removed. It becomes ABI_DEPENDS.
BUILDLINK_RECOMMENDED.foo becomes BUILDLINK_ABI_DEPENDS.foo.
BUILDLINK_DEPENDS.foo becomes BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS.foo.
BUILDLINK_DEPENDS does not change.
IGNORE_RECOMMENDED (which defaulted to "no") becomes USE_ABI_DEPENDS
which defaults to "yes".
I did not manually go through and fix any aesthetic tab/spacing issues.
I have tested the above patch on DragonFly building and packaging
subversion and pkglint and their many dependencies.
I have also tested USE_ABI_DEPENDS=no on my NetBSD workstation (where I
have used IGNORE_RECOMMENDED for a long time). I have been an active user
of IGNORE_RECOMMENDED since it was available.
Note that if you use wip, it will fail! I have patched wip too but need to
do again on a clean tree.
As suggested, I removed the documentation sentences suggesting bumping for
Please share your thoughts.
