Re: Add/Submit SAP related pkgs?

  From: Aleksey Cheusov <>

  Some time ago somebody suggested very good idea to set NO_BIN_ON_CDROM
  and NO_BIN_ON_FTP inside mk/ based on LICENSE set in package's Makefile.

No, because it basically isn't very useful.  There are free licenses,
which don't have to set anything (by definition), and then there are a
vast number of non-free licenses which are used for typically 1 or two
packages each.  So the benefit would only be for non-free licenses that
are used by more than one package, and the cost would be 100 or so extra
.mk files.

Also, this is even harder because the notion that a package has a single
license is not really accurate.

We actually do this already for djbware-nonlicense via, but
that's because we have the file already.
