Could you please name the 10 variables queried?

I don't think it matters. The same work is required for 1 or 100 and the name isn't important. But to answer your question:


The Port version has more variables than this, mainly because it has several more flavors of "DEPENDS".

I do not believe the pkgsrc framework is 28 times more complex than the
Ports Collection framework.  It's just much more inefficient.  I know
such statements rankle some pkgsrc devs, but numbers don't lie.

Indeed, interesting numbers. Rumours say most of it is spent in make's
string operations, but hard numbers (and reproducable ways to get them)
are good, thanks for sharing!

This is reproducible. If you proposed a fix, you could measure exactly the effect using the same machine with synth.
