Well, I don't think anybody can, considering it is not true. BUILDLINK_DEPMETHOD in a bl3.mk can be set to either full or build. I'd expect that to be documented, but I don't care enough to check. It doesn't resist a grep for BUILD_DEPENDS in mk/buildlink3 anyway. > In distbb I'd like to separate install- and build- dependencies in order > to reduce amount of packages rebuild recursively.

Wasn't there a RUN_DEPENDS in the early days? I might be mistaken on that but if not, the fact that it disappeared would be a clue. -- Quentin Garnier - cube%cubidou.net@localhost - cube%NetBSD.org@localhost "See the look on my face from staying too long in one place [...] every time the morning breaks I know I'm closer to falling" KT Tunstall, Saving My Face, Drastic Fantastic, 2007.
