In response to Richard's change of PREFER.openssl for SunOS, I'd like
to introduce a new private variable _OPSYS_PREFER.<pkg> which will
allow us to provide an advisory per-platform default.
Currently the mk/platform files set PREFER.<pkg> which has the highest
precedence, so users cannot override these defaults via PREFER_PKGSRC
or PREFER_NATIVE. I think it's messy having users put PREFER.<pkg> in
mk.conf, especially as it is occasionally overridden in pkgsrc.
The patch is here:
and I've also taken the opportunity to expand the documentation. With
this, the SunOS case where a PREFER_PKGSRC user wants to use the
builtin openssl would be handled with:
in mk.conf, which to me is most in line with the principle of least
