when developing pkgsrc packages, do you sometimes use the show-var
target? Or even show-vars? With always the same variable names? There is
now a simpler way, especially for interactive use: The show-all target.
$ cd $PKGSRCDIR/pkgtools/pkglint
$ bmake show-all
usr CONFIG_SHELL_FLAGS (defined, but empty)
pkg CONFIGURE_ENV = INSTALL_INFO= ...
pkg CONFIG_SHELL = /bin/sh
pkg CONFIGURE_SCRIPT = ./configure
pkg CONFIGURE_ARGS (defined, but empty)
pkg OVERRIDE_GNU_CONFIG_SCRIPTS (undefined)
pkg HAS_CONFIGURE (undefined)
pkg GNU_CONFIGURE (undefined)
pkg PKGCONFIG_OVERRIDE (undefined)
pkg USE_PKGLOCALEDIR (undefined)
This new target shows the public pkgsrc variables, reasonably grouped,
together with their values and which part of pkgsrc may set the
variable's value ("usr" for the pkgsrc user in mk.conf, "pkg" for the
package, and "sys" for the pkgsrc infrastructure).
If you are just interested in one group of variables, you can also
invoke the show-all-configure target; similar for the other groups.
I hope you'll like it.
