Re: Why is wip/virtualbox pulling lang/oracle-jre8 as a dependency?

But why is it requiring lang/oracle-jre8 at all? Why not lang/openjdk11?
$ bmake show-var VARNAME=_JRE_PKGSRCDIR
$ bmake help topic=_JRE_PKGSRCDIR
No help found for _JRE_PKGSRCDIR.
Since _JRE_PKGSRCDIR starts with an underscore, it is not part of the
public API, therefore it's good that there is no documentation for it. A
better help topic is "java"; and even though there is no help topic, you
at least get a list of the files that may contain documentation.
As a first starting point, you can run (as suggested in
$ bmake show-all
Or more specifically:
$ bmake show-all-java
This shows you the variables from the public API of the Java part of
pkgsrc. From the output, you will get a rough idea about what happens
inside mk/java-vm.mk. And if that doesn't help, you at least have a
starting point for reading the implementation.
To trace the exact steps that happen in mk/java-vm.mk, you can modify
the package Makefile:
.MAKEFLAGS: -dcv # trace variable assignments and conditions
.error stop here
The ".error" line stops parsing the package Makefile immediately because
once enabled, bmake's debug logging cannot be turned off again.
