Thanks for the explanation. I now see that some the the same material
is in mk/buildlink3/BUILDLINK3_DG:
Q2: Why can't I check the values of variables set by the buildlink3
framework using 'make show-var VARNAME=...'?
A2: Some variables are only defined for a subset of the package build
phases. Try instead:
make show-var PKG_PHASE=wrapper VARNAME=...

Anyway, the following commands still return nothing (as does any other
phase used instead of wrapper):
make show-var PKG_PHASE=wrapper VARNAME=PKG_PREFIX.gettext-lib
Note: here is the bit from the bison Makefile that I expected would
cause PKG_PREFIX.gettext-lib to be defined.
I must still be missing something. Could someone please verify that
they see the same thing. When is PKG_PREFIX.* visible as a value?
Any further help is greatly appreciated.
