Building a package needing the workdir of another package
What's the intended way of building a package that needs files from the working
directory of the build of another package?
I'm trying to pkgsrc dovecot-managesieve. Building it needs files from a built
dovecot because it links against libraries dovecot doesn't export.
Yes, best solution would be if dovecot did install those libraries, but I'm not
in a position to tell dovecot's or managesieve's authors that should be done.
Solution 1: Use DISTFILES, CONFIGURE_DIRS and BUILD_DIRS to build dovecot (or
at least, the relevant libraries) inside dovecot-managesieve's working
directory. Should probably work, but duplicates both build time and pkgsrc
Solution 2: Don't build managesieve as a separate package, but as an option to
the dovecot package. Should work too, but breaks modularity.
