HTTPS certificates are now verified when "make makesum" fetches distfiles.
If this fails make sure you have a CA certificate bundle installed such as
security/ca_root_nss. If it still fails and there are other HTTPS sites
with a valid certificate consider removing the site from MASTER_SITES.
If the site cannot be removed you can disable certificate verification by
adding the following line to the port Makefile:
FETCH_ENV= SSL_NO_VERIFY_PEER=1 SSL_NO_VERIFY_HOSTNAME=1

* Qt 4's binaries have been moved to lib/qt4/bin to match what is already done
to Qt 5's binaries. Since these binaries are no longer in ${LOCALBASE}/bin,
they also do not have the -qt4 suffix in their names any more.
* Consequently, there are no Qt 4 or Qt 5 binaries in the default $PATH, and
misc/qtchooser is now used to select the actual Qt binaries. In other
words, calling "qmake" or "moc" now goes through qtchooser, which prefers
Qt 5 binaries by default.
The ports framework handles this automatically. The UPDATING entry covers
this in more detail.
* Qt 5.7.1 requires a C++11-capable compiler to be used. qmake and CMake pass
the appropriate flags to the compiler (such as -std=c++11) automatically,
but if your port fetches Qt's build flags via pkg-config (which can be the
case for autotools-based ports), you might need to take care of this
manually by setting USE_CXXSTD in your Makefile:
USE_CXXSTD= c++11

AUTHOR: mat@FreeBSD.org
A new EXTRA_PATCH_TREE has been added. Points to a directory hierarchy with
the same layout as the ports tree, where local patches can be found. This
allows a third party to keep their patches in some other source control
system if needed.
For example, if you have EXTRA_PATCH_TREE=/patches, when building
lang/perl5.24, any file named patch-* in /patches/lang/perl5.24/ will be used
to patch the Perl distribution.

AUTHOR: mat@FreeBSD.org
During extraction of the do-patch target into a separate script, the "-d
PATCH_WRKSRC" had to be removed from the PATCH_ARGS and PATCH_DIST_ARGS
variables. If using these variables directly, you will need to adapt the
Makefile. For example:
${PATCH} ${PATCH_ARGS} < ${FILESDIR}/extra-patch
needs to be changed to:
${PATCH} -d ${PATCH_WRKSRC} ${PATCH_ARGS} < ${FILESDIR}/extra-patch

QT_PREFIX has been dropped, in favour of using PREFIX directly.

Support has been added for complete set of Creative Commons licenses
CC-(BY|BY-ND|BY-NC|BY-NC-ND|BY-NC-SA|BY-SA)-(1.0|2.0|2.5|3.0|4.0)

AUTHOR: amdmi3@FreeBSD.org
Verbose build logs are now preferred and enabled by default for cmake,
ninja and GNU configure. Ports which still produce quiet build logs
(hiding actual commands) are strongly advised to switch to verbose logs.
20160908:
AUTHOR: amdmi3@FreeBSD.org
Support has been added for NONE license, use it when the port doesn't
have cleanly defined licensing terms. Note that without clean license
allowing you to use and distribute the code it would be be illegal to do
so in many jurisdictions, so for ports with NONE license no distfiles or
packages are distributed.

To complete the USE_GITHUB framework, a GH_SUBDIR variable has been added.
It automatically moves a secondary distfile to the right place inside WRKSRC.
It also extends the GH_TUPLE variable to make it as easy to use as possible.
Before:
GH_TUPLE= Regaddi:Chart.js:f13f99b:chart_js \
FVANCOP:ChartNew.js:77e7f87:chartnew_js
post-extract:
@${RMDIR} ${WRKSRC}/database ${WRKSRC}/3rd/Chart.js
@${MV} ${WRKSRC_database} ${WRKSRC}/database
@${MV} ${WRKSRC_chart_js} ${WRKSRC}/3rd/Chart.js
After:
GH_TUPLE= Regaddi:Chart.js:f13f99b:chart_js/3rd/Chart.js \
FVANCOP:ChartNew.js:77e7f87:chartnew_js/3rd/ChartNew.js
It also works if not using GH_TUPLE but the regular
GH_ACCOUNT/PROJECT/TAGNAME variables:
GH_SUBDIR= 3rd/Chart.js:chart_js 3rd/ChartNew.js:chartnew_js

AUTHOR: kde@FreeBSD.org
A new USES file has been introduced: USES=kde:4, which replaces the old
bsd.kde4.mk file in preparation for upcoming KDE Frameworks and Plasma5
ports.
Ports depending on KDE4 have to switch from
USE_KDE4=foo bar
to
USES=kde:4
USE_KDE=foo bar
and make sure to switch from using KDE4_PREFIX to the new name KDE_PREFIX
in the Makefiles as well as plists.
20160821:
AUTHOR: kde@FreeBSD.org
A new USES file has been introduced: USES=grantlee:[4,5], which introduces a
LIB_DEPENDS on either devel/grantlee (Qt4) or devel/grantlee5 (Qt5).
Uses/grantlee.mk also exports the GRANTLEE_VERSION variable to users, and the
GRANTLEE_VERSION_FULL and GRANTLEE_VERSION_SHORT pkg-plist substitutions.
20160817:
AUTHOR: mat@FreeBSD.org
This adds the possibility to use regular expressions for the makeplist stage
of the PLIST_SUB life.
From time to time, the values are too generic, and they get in the way of
other stuff.
This adds the possibility to have a VAR_regex=regex that will be used
instead of the VAR=string to search for possible replacements.
For example, in lang/perl5*, there is PERL_ARCH=mach, which will get replaced
in paths if a file is called, say "machine", will end up being
"%%PERL_ARCH%%ine". Adding PERL_ARCH_regex="\bmach\b" will ensure only full
words are replaced, so machine will stay machine, but "lib/mach/foo "will
still be replaced by "lib/%%PERL_ARCH%%/foo".

AUTHOR: mat@FreeBSD.org
Every PHP (or Zend) extension now installs its own .ini file in
/usr/local/etc/php. A PHP extension will be automatically activated when
installed. The order into which extensions are loaded is automatically
guessed. In some very rare cases, the guess will be wrong, and PHP_MOD_PRIO
will need to be set. Refer to the USES=php section of the Porter's Handbook
for more information.
20160628:
AUTHOR: mat@FreeBSD.org
USEify USES=php.
The following variables have been folded into arguments:
- USE_PHPIZE -> USES=php:phpize
- USE_PHPEXT -> USES=php:ext
- USE_ZENDEXT -> USES=php:zend
- USE_PHP_BUILD -> USES=php:build
- WANT_PHP_CLI -> USES=php:cli
- WANT_PHP_CGI -> USES=php:cgi
- WANT_PHP_MOD -> USES=php:mod
- WANT_PHP_WEB -> USES=php:web
- WANT_PHP_EMB -> USES=php:embed

AUTHOR: adamw@FreeBSD.org
A new ${opt}_CMAKE_BOOL OPTIONS helper has been added. Instead of:
FOO_CMAKE_ON= -DWITH_FOO:BOOL=YES -DWITH_BAR:BOOL=YES
FOO_CMAKE_OFF= -DWITH_FOO:BOOL=NO -DWITH_BAR:BOOL=NO
you can use this shortcut:
SOMEOPT_CMAKE_BOOL= WITH_FOO WITH_BAR
20160525:
AUTHOR: mat@FreeBSD.org
A new stage-qa test has been added, it reports all shared libraries
dependencies that are not part of the port list of dependencies. It help
finds what is called proxy dependencies.
A is needed by B, and B is needed by C. If C also needs A, then it needs to
be registered, and this check will tell you to do so.
Right now, it is only reporting the problems, but if you add
PROXYDEPS_FATAL=yes to your environment, it will give an error and will force
you to fix the dependencies.

AUTHOR: bapt@FreeBSD.org
New keyword @xmlcatmgr has been added, to handle the XML and SGML catalog
maintainance, in order to improve consistency and correctness of the
generation of the catalog.
If the catalog file has an extension being '.xml' it will be automatically
added to the XML catalog, otherwise it will be added to the SGML catalog
20160512:
AUTHOR: emaste@FreeBSD.org
"make makesum" now writes the current timestamp to distinfo when it is run.
This is done to support development and prototyping efforts for reproducible
package builds, which require some concept of a "last updated" time.
The TIMESTAMP can currently be ignored for ports that have no distinfo, and
for updates done without using "make makesum."
20160428
AUTHOR: mat@FreeBSD.org
USE_RUBYGEMS has been replaced by USES=gem.
20160426:
AUTHOR: mat@FreeBSD.org
USE_MYSQL and USE_BDB have been replaced by USES=mysql and USES=bdb.
WANT_BDB_VER=XX should be replaced by USES=bdb:XX.
20160414:
AUTHOR: mat@FreeBSD.org
USE_RC_SUBR=yes has not done anything for a long time, it will now give an error.
20160413:
AUTHOR: jbeich@FreeBSD.org
Introducing CONFIGURE_OUTSOURCE. It changes HAS_CONFIGURE and GNU_CONFIGURE
by invoking configure, build and install stage outside of source tree e.g.,
$ mkdir ../.build
$ cd ../.build
$ ${OLDPWD}/configure
$ gmake
$ gmake install
20160402:
AUTHOR: bapt@FreeBSD.org
Adding ${PORTSDIR} in dependency lines is no longer necessary meaning
RUN_DEPENDS= foo:${PORTSDIR}/bar/foo
can now be written
RUN_DEPENDS= foo:bar/foo
if the path after ':' is not absolute the framework will automatically
prepend ${PORTSDIR}/
20160301:
AUTHOR: mat@FreeBSD.org
Introduce GH_TUPLE.
GH_TUPLE allows one to put all the GH_{ACCOUNT,PROJECT,TAGNAME} into one
variable, in the form of account:project:tagname[:group]. It is helpful when
there are many submodules.
20160207:
AUTHOR: kwm@FreeBSD.org
The GNOME and MATE framework activation changed. To use the frameworks
now either gnome or mate needs to be added USES.
The usage of USE_GNOME, USE_MATE, INSTALLS_ICONS and for example
GLIB_SCHEMAS stays the same.
Like with USES, the use of USE_GNOME and so after bsd.port.pre.mk
is now forbidden.
20160112:
AUTHOR: amdmi3@FreeBSD.org
Support has been added for "or later" variants of GNU licenses
(e.g. LICENSE=GPLv2+) and for Public Domain (LICENSE=PD).
Complete list of new LICENSE values:
AGPLv3+ GPLv1+ GPLv2+ GPLv3+ GPLv3RLE+ LGPL20+ LGPL21+ LGPL3+ PD

AUTHOR: bapt@FreeBSD.org
USE_FIREBIRD and USE_SQLITE has been replaced by USES=firebird and
USES=sqlite
20151105:
AUTHOR: mat@FreeBSD.org
Change the meaning of NO_WRKSUBDIR to force a WRKDIR != WRKSRC.
Right now, NO_WRKSUBDIR means that the extraction does not produce a
subdirectory, and that everything goes straight into WRKDIR. It is
problematic, because during the build of a port, quite a few files
are created in there, and then, a stage directory, where everything
is installed, and then a pkg directory where the package is created,
and those often conflict, or get in the way, of the building
process.
With this, NO_WRKSUBDIR will extract the distfiles directly into
WRKSRC instead of WRKDIR. In this case, WRKSRC is artificial and is
based on PKGNAME and not DISTNAME, mitigate conflicts with rc files.
20151022:
AUTHOR: amdmi3@FreeBSD.org
Improved support for USES=shebangfix
- We now support multiple values for *_OLD_CMD
- We replace more variants by default (/bin/${lang}, /usr/bin/${lang},
/usr/bin/env ${lang}).
- shebangfix now also supports lua if USES=lua is specified
- Pattern matching has been improved: we now only match whole worlds,
e.g. "/usr/bin/perl5.005" is no longer erroneously replaced with
"${perl_CMD}5.005".
Note that *_OLD_CMD entries which contain spaces must now be quoted.
20150928:
AUTHOR: amdmi3@FreeBSD.org
Implemented complete support for test target.
You can now `make test' on any port to run test sequence, no-op by default.
If a port defines TEST_TARGET, it'll run sub-make with specified target,
usually `check' or `test', useful if upstream supports that. The port may
instead define custom do-test target, as well as usual satellite targets:
{pre,do,post}-test, {pre,do,post}-test-OPT, {pre,do,post}-test-OPT-off
`make test' builds and stages port first, so test may use both WRKDIR and
STAGEDIR, and both BUILD and RUN depends are available for test target.
Additionally, TEST_DEPENDS is now properly supported and may be used to
define additional depends specifically for testing.
Framework may define default tests for specific cases. For instance,
perl5.mk and cran.mk provide default test target on their own.
20150926:
AUTHOR: bapt@FreeBSD.org
@sample now accept arguments, so it can now be used the following way:
@sample afile.sample
or
@sample path/to/example etc/target
20150926:
AUTHOR: bapt@FreeBSD.org
New keywords are supported in pkg since 1.5.x:
@preexec <command>: execute the <command> during pre-install scripts
@postexec <command>: execute the <command> during post-install scripts
@preunexec <command>: execute the <command> during pre-deinstall scripts
@postunexec <command>: execute the <command> during post-deinstall scripts
@exec does not specify when if should be executed and is now considered as
deprecated.
20150914:
AUTHOR: mat@FreeBSD.org
Introducing the %%PERL5_MAN1%% PLIST_SUB entry, as Perl now installs man1
pages in the same prefix as man3 pages.
20150828:
AUTHOR: mat@FreeBSD.org
<opt>_VARS and <opt>_VARS_OFF have been introduced to allow for a generic way
to set/append to variables.
OPT1_VARS= foo=bar baz+=bam
will set FOO to bar and append bam to BAZ if OPT1 is enabled. <opt>_VARS_OFF
works the same way, if the option is disabled.
20150818:
AUTHOR: kde@FreeBSD.org
The CMAKE_ENV option has been deprecated. It no longer has any effect, and
the CONFIGURE_ENV variable should be used instead.
20150818:
AUTHOR: mat@FreeBSD.org
<opt>_IMPLIES and <opt>_PREVENTS have been introduced to register dependency,
or conflicts between options.
OPTIONS_DEFINE= FOO BAR BAZ
FOO_IMPLIES= BAR
BAZ_PREVENTS= BAR
If the FOO option is selected, the BAR option will be enabled as well. If
the BAZ and BAR options are both enabled, an error will be given.
20150817:
AUTHOR: mat@FreeBSD.org
UNIQUENAME and LATEST_LINK have been removed. LATEST_LINK was only used by
ports-mgmt/pkg{,-devel} and PKGBASE can be used in its stead. UNIQUENAME was
used by USE_LDCONFIG where it was not unique enough, and as old compat shims
with options.
20150716:
AUTHOR: kwm@FreeBSD.org
USE_GHOSTSCRIPT was replaced by USES=ghostscript. The ghostscript USES
accepts version, build, run, nox11 and for version 9 the agpl argument.
If no version is specified, the default 9 for GHOSTSCRIPT_DEFAULT is honored.
20150701:
AUTHOR: mat@FreeBSD.org
Make option target helpers have been added, it allows replacing:
.include <bsd.port.options.mk>

Extend the multiple distfiles USE_GITHUB framework by allowing it to fetch
only additional distfiles, but not the main one. Set USE_GITHUB=nodefault
and use the GH_* variables with groups as usual.
20150528:
AUTHOR: mat@FreeBSD.org
USE_GITHUB can now fetch multiple distfiles. It uses a grouping feature
similar to MASTER_SITES/PATCH_SITES.
Some helpful variables are provided: WRKSRC_<group> for putting things in the
right place in post-extract, and DISTNAME_<group>/DISTFILE_<group> for use
with EXTRACT_ONLY.
A simple example:
PORTNAME= bar
PORTVERSION= 1.0
USE_GITHUB= yes
GH_ACCOUNT= foo
GH_PROJECT= ${PORTNAME}-images:images
post-extract:
@${MV} ${WRKSRC_images} ${WRKSRC}/images
It will fetch those two distfiles:
$ make fetch-urlall-list
https://codeload.github.com/foo/bar/tar.gz/1.0?dummy=/foo-bar-1.0_GH0.tar.gz
https://codeload.github.com/foo/bar-images/tar.gz/1.0?dummy=/foo-bar-images-1.0-1.0.tar.gz
It will then extract them to ${WRKDIR} in their respectives directories.

AUTHOR: antoine@FreeBSD.org
PYTHON_REL has been switched from a 3 digits number to a 4 digits number to
handle python 2.7.10. Ports checking for python 2.7.9 should compare
PYTHON_REL against 2709 and ports checking for python 2.7.10 should compare
PYTHON_REL against 2710.

USE_AUTOTOOLS has been deprecated. It can be replaced with USES=autoreconf
and GNU_CONFIGURE=yes.
Support for USE_AUTOTOOLS=libtoolize has been removed. It can be replaced
with "USES=autoreconf libtool".
20150409:

Add a new USES=gnustep to handle the GNUstep ports. Now the dependencies on
GNUstep libraries is done via the regular LIB_DEPENDS
USE_GNUSTEP is now a macro that accept many arguments: back, build, gui, back
Depending on the feature needed for a given port
Reuse USES=objc to avoid duplicating code
20150408:
AUTHOR: bapt@FreeBSD.org
Add a new USES=waf to handle the waf building system, allowing to factorise
code. Plug waf into MAKE_CMD and CONFIGURE_CMD so the regular defined targets
can be reused.
Always define _MAKE_JOBS so that when bsd.port.mk will stop overwritting
_MAKE_JOBS when parallel jobs are disabled we can enforce -j1 (which is needed
to really disable parallelisation with waf
WAF_CMD has been created to allow one to override the location of the waf
script relatively to WRKSRC
CONFIGURE_TARGET is by default defined to "configure"
ALL_TARGET is by default defined to "build"
INSTALL_TARGET is by default defined to "install"
USES=waf is by default stagedir safe

MASTER_SITE GHR (GITHUB_RELEASE) has been removed. The same functionality
can be achieved with just USE_GITHUB/GH_ACCOUNT/GH_PROJECT. GH_TAGNAME
defaults to DISTVERSION. If the tag needs to be adjusted then change
GH_TAGNAME. No GH_COMMIT is needed.
20150319:
AUTHOR: bdrewery@FreeBSD.org
USE_GITHUB has been updated to make GH_COMMIT optional. Using this new
scheme allows only setting the _tag_ or _commit hash_ in GH_TAGNAME and
not having to know the hash for a tag. This scheme will download a tarball
that has a different checksum than before due to a changed directory name
for extraction.
GH_TAGNAME can now be any length of the hash as long as it is unique. There
is no longer a 7-character requirement.
The following MASTER_SITES are provided to retain the old checksum and
directory structure (that require GH_COMMIT):
GH -> GHL
GITHUB -> GITHUB_LEGACY

Dependencies on the Xfce ports have been migrated to USES. Instead
of USE_XFCE= configenv, you should use USES= xfce.

New USE_QT4 component has been introduced to reduce buildtime
dependencies for Qt 4 ports that use localization support. Instead
of USE_QT4=linguist you should now use USE_QT4=linguisttools_build.
Conversion of existing ports may require USE_QT4 adjustment for
missing components.

AFFECTS: users of lang/perl5.*
AUTHOR: mat@FreeBSD.org
Perl now links libperl.so with all .so it builds. The stage-qa checks have
been extended to check that libperl.so is in fact linked with .so in
SITE_ARCH and errors out if none of the .so build by a port are linked with
it. It also checks that the rpath and runpath elf attributes are present.

The devel/gettext port has been split up in devel/gettext-runtime which
contains runtime libraries such as libintl, and devel/gettext-tools which
contains build tools such as msgfmt. You can use USES=gettext-runtime to
set a LIB/BUILD/RUN_DEPENDS on devel/gettext-runtime and USES=gettext-tools
to set a BUILD/RUN_DEPENDS on devel/gettext-tools.
USES=gettext is now the same as "USES=gettext-runtime gettext-tools",
meaning a LIB_DEPENDS on devel/gettext-runtime and a BUILD_DEPENDS on
devel/gettext-tools.

The way Perl modules are installed has changed. Before, we had
site_perl : lib/perl5/site_perl/5.18
site_perl/perl_arch : lib/perl5/site_perl/5.18/mach
perl_man3 : lib/perl5/5.18/man/man3
Now we have :
site_perl : lib/perl5/site_perl
site_arch : lib/perl5/site_perl/mach/5.18
perl_man3 : lib/perl5/site_perl/man/man3
Modules without any .so will be installed at the same place regardless of the
Perl version, minimizing the upgrade when the major Perl version is changed.
It uses a version dependent directory for modules with compiled bits.
As PERL_ARCH is no longer needed in plists, it has been removed from
PLIST_SUB.
The USE_PERL5=fixpacklist keyword is removed, the .packlist file is now
always removed, as is perllocal.pod.
The old site_perl and site_perl/arch directories have been kept in the
default Perl @INC for all Perl ports, and will be phased out as these old
Perl versions expire.

AUTHOR: bdrewery@FreeBSD.org
Building ports in a chroot or jail have always required a particular
environment be setup. This was not clear though and the ports framework
did not enforce it. These requirements are:
1. Either a SRC_BASE/sys/sys/param.h, or /usr/include/sys/param.h be
present with the __FreeBSD_version_ number of the target system,
or OSVERSION be set in the environment. Lack of these would fallback
on kern.osreldate before, which is no longer the case.
2. UNAME_r,UNAME_v,UNAME_s all must be set for the target system.
Not having these values in sync will now cause the build to error until it is
resolved.
Setting these in the environment can be done via your own wrapper scripts,
or /etc/login.conf (along with cap_mkdb /etc/login.conf) or
via /etc/make.conf using appropriate values. Note that OSVERSION is redundant
if a proper param.h is in the environment:

pkg(8) now handles the directories under PREFIX automatically,
and will automatically remove them as needed.
A new @dir keyword has been introduced to handle directories specially:
- directories with special owner, group, or permissions (access mode)
- empty directories
- directories out of PREFIX
As a consequence @dirrm and @dirrmtry are now considered deprecated.
Credentials can now be passed in arguments to keywords
(the empty keyword means "regular file"):
@(user,group,mode) file1
@dir(user,group,mode) directory_with_special_owner_or_mode
PLIST_DIRSTRY is now considered deprecated, use PLIST_DIRS instead.

New PYTHON_CONCURRENT_INSTALL knob to support the parallel installation
of ports for different python versions.
If set to yes, the knob indicates that the port can be installed for
different python versions at the same time. The port will use a unique
prefix for certain directories using USES=uniquefiles:dirs (see the
uniquefiles.mk Uses for details about the directories). Binaries
receive an additional suffix, based on ${PYTHON_VER}.
The values for the uniquefiles USES are set as follows:
UNIQUE_PREFIX= ${PYTHON_PKGNAMEPREFIX}
UNIQUE_SUFFIX= -${PYTHON_VER}
If the port is installed for the current default python version, scripts and
binaries in
${PREFIX}/bin

New USES=uniquefiles to make files or directories unique
by adding a prefix or suffix to them.
Files listed in UNIQUE_PREFIX_FILES will receive the prefix
set via UNIQUE_PREFIX. The same applies to UNIQUE_SUFFIX_FILES,
but with the chosen UNIQUE_SUFFIX. UNIQUE_PREFIX and
UNIQUE_SUFFIX are set to PKGNAMEPREFIX and PKGNAMESUFFIX by
default.
The uniquefiles USES enables ports to name files in special
ways, e.g. by outlining that the port does not support X11
(-nox11). A binary named bin/foo thus can be easily renamed
to bin/foo-featureA via
USES= uniquefiles
UNIQUE_SUFFIX= -featureA
UNIQUE_SUFFIX_FILES= bin/foo
The uniquefiles USES automatically adjusts the plist at
installation time. There is no need to consider the prefix
or suffix in the pkg-plist file itself. If the original name
of the renamed file is bin/foo, this exact name should be put
into pkg-plist.
The dirs argument to USES=uniquefiles will cause certain
standard directories, such as DOCSDIR or EXAMPLESDIR to be
prepended with the UNIQUE_PREFIX. The change to the directories
will hapen prior to configuring or building the port, so that
the port Makefile as well as the port's build logic are aware
of the changed name.
Since the uniquefiles USES effectively manipulates the port's
installation and file layout, it will only be available for
stagedir-aware ports. Ports with NO_STAGE=yes will be unable
to use the uniquefiles USES.

AUTHOR: mva@FreeBSD.org
lang/python (and as such the 'python' binary and accomplices)
has been removed as default dependency for the USE_PYTHON,
USE_PYTHON_BUILD and USE_PYTHON_RUN knobs.
Ports need to use a designated (default) python interpreter
to build and install and in most cases for execution in the user
environment. Ports that install python scripts, which are not
limited to a certain python version (or version range), can
include lang/python as build and/or run dependency.
USE_PYTHON=yes and similar knobs will only pull in the
default python version (e.g. lang/python27), but none
of the meta ports or lang/python itself.
Please use lang/python as build or run-time dependency only,
if there is no other way to get a port working properly, since
the usage of lang/python complicates package builds for different
python versions.

The ports tree is now staged by default. With pkgng the sequence hasn't
changed, the main difference is that creating package is now independent
from installing it. With pkg_install, the package is now created first
and make install, do install the package.
New macros:
- STAGEDIR: PATH to the directory where the port will be staged.
- NO_STAGE: Keep the old behaviour of the ports tree (aka no staging area)
Unsupported macro if NO_STAGE is not set:
- MAN* with staging man page compression and handling of hardlinks and
symlinks is automatically done in the stage. the manpages becomes then a
"normal" plist files and should be tracked in pkg-plist.
- MANCOMPRESSED the compress-man target is able to only compress when it
needed.
New target:
- stage: this installs everything into the stage directory
- makeplist: this will create a pkg-plist and print it to stdout. This is
a sample plist and it should always be _reviewed_ not directly used.
NOTE: with staging only what is in the plist will be installed, nothing more,
meaning a port staged cannot have leftovers except directories left. It is
really important to double check the pkg-plist to make sure all the files
the maintainer wants to package are in! make makeplist can help in that area.

SSP support has been added to ports with WITH_SSP_PORTS for i386 and amd64
on FreeBSD 10, and amd64 on earlier versions.
SSP_UNSAFE is added to disable in a port if it fails to build, but
this should only be used in rare circumstances such as kernel modules.
Otherwise, the port may just be failing due to lack of respecting
LDFLAGS.
On FreeBSD 10, this uses an ldscript in /usr/lib/libc.so to pull in
libssp_nonshared.a to address issues linking on i386 [1].
On earlier FreeBSD versions the WITH_SSP_PORTS knob will add -lssp_nonshared
to LDFLAGS on i386. This is not needed on amd64. However, several hundred
ports do not currently respect LDFLAGS, so this support is disabled currently
as it causes build failures if a dependency is looking for the stack_chk
symbols.

* CCACHE support for building ports has been added (depends on
devel/ccache). Therefore new user settable variables are available:
WITH_CCACHE_BUILD - Enable CCACHE support (Default off)
NO_CCACHE - Disable CCACHE support for example for certain
ports if CCACHE is enabled.
By default CCACHE uses $HOME/.ccache as cache directory. To use
a non-default cache directory this could be overwritten like:
MAKE_ENV+= CCACHE_DIR=/var/cache/ccache

* GitHub support has been integrated into bsd.sites.mk. In order to
fetch distfiles from GitHub, a port must define USE_GITHUB along
with the following variables:
GH_ACCOUNT - account name of the GitHub user hosting the project
default: not set, mandatory
GH_PROJECT - name of the project on GitHub
default: ${PORTNAME}
GH_TAGNAME - name of the tag to download (master, 2.0.1, ...)
default: ${DISTVERSION}
GH_COMMIT - first 7 digits of the commit that generated GH_TAGNAME
(man git-describe(1))
default: not set, mandatory
The port www/tivoka is an example how to use this mechanism.

For example, where you would have used
CONFIGURE_ENV= CPPFLAGS="-I${LOCALBASE}/include"
MAKE_ENV= SOMETHING=foo CPPFLAGS="-I${LOCALBASE}/include"

* The Perl-related code parts have been extracted from bsd.port.mk to
bsd.perl.mk. This includes the user-settable knobs (e.g. USE_PERL5)
and infrastructure parts of the code, like default targets. The new
code is designed to be conditionally included based on either
USE_PERL5_*, PERL_CONFIGURE, or PERL_MODBUILD being set. However,
some of the default settings remain in bsd.port.mk while we make
sure that all ports comply with this.
* A convenient version handling has been implemented for Perl-related
knobs. With this new feature one can require a minimal, a maximal or an
exact version, that the given port needs. For the full description and
some examples, please see the documentation in bsd.perl.mk.
20070804:
AUTHOR: gabor@FreeBSD.org
The following functional changes were made to bsd.*.mk and to
Tools/scripts/security-check.awk:
* The variable definitions that cover command line tools, e.g. MKDIR, were
extracted from bsd.port.mk into bsd.commands.mk, so that we can
reuse them within the infrastructure later.
* The old DESTDIR implementation was removed both from the infrastructure,
and from the individual ports. Variables like TARGETDIR should not longer
be used.
* A new DESTDIR implementation has been added, implemented in bsd.destdir.mk.
The new implementation puts no requirements on the individual ports.
20070730:
AUTHOR: python@FreeBSD.org
* The default Python version has been changed from 2.4.x to 2.5.x.
* A number of variables have been added to bsd.python.mk to support
the more integrated support for Python eggs, including:
PYDISTUTILS_PKGNAME, PYDISTUTILS_PKGVERSION, PYEASYINSTALL_EGG,
PYDISTUTILS_NOEGGINFO, PYDISTUTILS_EGGINFO, PYEASYINSTALL_ARCHDEP

The following change was made to the ports infrastructure:
* Virtual category 'kld' was added. If the port installs kernel loadable

The following changes were made to the ports infrastructure:
* The 'make-deinstall-all' target now checks for moved ports.
* The installation directories PORTEXAMPLES and PORTDATA are now defined.
* The USE_MAKESELF knob is added for ports that use the makeself archiver.
* The description of fetch-list was updated. The targets fetch-required-list,
fetch-url-list, and fetch-urlall-list were added.
* 'make search' will also now search in ports/MOVED.
* The default method for 'make update' is now portsnap. Previously,
you had to manually select one of 3 methods: SUP_UPDATE, CVS_UPDATE,
or PORTSNAP_UPDATE. The latter is now obsolete.
* Several Makevar definitions have been moved to the pre-makefile section:
DATADIR, DOCSDIR, ETCDIR, EXAMPLESDIR, WWWDIR.

The following changes were made to the ports infrastructure:
* The default dependency of USE_GHOSTSCRIPT has been changed from
ghostscript-gnu to ghostscript-gpl. The WITH_GHOSTSCRIPT_GPL variable is

* bsd.tcl.mk was overhauled. Most importantly, the semantics of USE_TCL* and
USE_TK* variables was changed. USE_TCL and USE_TK now implies both build

introduced. Existing ports in the tree were modified.
* Unused category 'tcl81' was removed, and new categories 'tcl' and 'tk'

20070324:
AUTHOR: portmgr@FreeBSD.org
The following changes were made to the ports infrastructure:
* Default LIBTOOLFILES value was changed from literal `configure'
to ${CONFIGURE_SCRIPT}.
* bsd.efl.mk was moved to ports/Mk. USE_EFL family of macros is now
generally available to all ports.
* New macros COPYTREE_BIN and COPYTREE_SHARE were added, to allow
for easy installation of a tree hierarchy, either with executable (bin)
or read-only (share) permissions on files.
* A new variable WWWDIR was added, with default value of
${PREFIX}/www/${PORTNAME}.
* Variables DOCSDIR_REL, DATADIR_REL, EXAMPLESDIR_REL and WWWDIR_REL were
added for porter's convenience. They contain the values of their
respective non-REL variables, except relative to installation PREFIX.

* It is now possible to include USE_PHP after bsd.port.pre.mk.
* 'make search' should now work with non-default ${PORTSDIR}.
20070130:
AUTHOR: portmgr@FreeBSD.org
The following changes were made to the ports infrastructure:
* DEPENDS variable was removed, please use other *_DEPENDS variables instead.
* A new pkg-plist keyword is available, @stopdaemon. It will call forcestop
on all rc.subr scripts installed by the port on deinstall, effectively
stopping services on deinstall/upgrade.
* rc.subr script suffix is now available in Makefile as RC_SUBR_SUFFIX.
* New variable USE_CDRTOOLS was introduced. It replaced direct dependencies
on sysutils/cdrtools port. It now automatically support switching to
cdrtools-cjk port when user specified WITH_CJK. All ports were converted.
* USE_DOS2UNIX, infrastructure for converting DOS to UNIX line feeds, was
enhanced by a new variable DOS2UNIX_REGEX. It allows to specify a find
-iregex parameter to limit touched files by file extensions.
* Support for partially translated manpages was added. For examples of
usage, please refer to Porter's Handbook.
* USE_TCL/USE_TK variables were changed to provide runtime dependency. New
variables USE_TCL_BUILD and USE_TK_BUILD were added. All unintuitive
quirks of these variables were fixed.
* USE_LDCONFIG was fixed to work properly for ports, that specify @cwd in the
pkg-plists.
* Old bsd.java.mk version 1.0 macros were removed.
* New category: ports-mgmt
* New virtual category: gnustep
* Unused 'picobsd' category was removed.

The following functional changes were made to bsd.port.mk:
* The bsd.port.mk pre and post includes have been split into 3 pieces
instead of 2, to allow OPTIONS to be able to influence dependencies.
This is still experimental and not yet enabled by any port. This adds
the file 'bsd.port.options.mk'.
* bsd.gcc.mk has been updated to understand gfortran.
* emulators/linux_base is now removed. linux_base-fc4 has been the default
for some time.
* The USE_FIREBIRD macro was added to bsd.database.mk.
20060914:

The following functional changes were made to bsd.port.mk:
* PKGVERSION was introduced as an intermediate variable refactored out of
PKGNAME.
* bsd.lua.mk was added to support lua-related ports.
* DESTDIR was removed from bsd.scons.mk because it was problematic.
* Some quotes were added to the 'missing' target to improve handling of
duplicate origins.

The following functional changes were made to bsd.sites.mk:
* MASTER_SITES variable can now look like MACRO1/subdir1 MACRO2/subdir2, and
be expanded in a way that you expect it to, that is apply different subdirs
to different sites. You can safely replace ${M_S_FOO:S/%SUBDIR%/bar/} with
FOO/bar.
* If M_S_SUBDIR is unset, a macro in M_S won't set it anymore, but rather
substitute %SUBDIR% all by itself. Now it's possible to use macros with
different default subdirs and they will expand in a proper way.
20060805:
AUTHOR: sat@FreeBSD.org
The following functional changes were made to bsd.sites.mk:
* MASTER_SITES variable can now contain special macros which are expanded into
traditional URL[:group] syntax and cause some convenient effects, e.g. set a
default M_S_SUBDIR.
* A macro is any space-delimited word in MASTER_SITES without a forward slash.
* If MASTER_SITE_<macro> is defined, then the macro is expanded to its value.
* Abbreviated macros are provided for extremely popular locations, e.g. CPAN
and SF. To avoid further obfuscation their unabbreviated equivalents should
be avoided.
* Popular macros can trigger M_S_SUBDIR to default to a predefined value, e.g.
${PORTNAME:L} for SF and ${PORTNAME:C/-.*//} for CPAN.
* Abbreviations and M_S_SUBDIR defaults are defined by MASTER_SITES_ABBREVS
and MASTER_SITES_SUBDIRS, both set in bsd.sites.mk.
* If a macro belongs to a group (e.g. SF:source1), all the sites it expands
into also belong to the same group.
* Macros and traditional URL's can be mixed safely, their order stays intact.
20060804:
AUTHOR: gabor@FreeBSD.org
The following functional changes were made to bsd.*.mk and to
Tools/scripts/security-check.awk:
* Add DESTDIR support to let one install ports into a jail from outside.
A package is installed under ${DESTDIR}${PREFIX} now and registered under
${DESTDIR}/var/db/pkg.
* TARGETDIR variable has been added for referencing ${DESTDIR}${PREFIX}.
* LOCALBASE, LINUXBASE and X11BASE variables point to the final destination
now, LOCALBASE_REL, LINUXBASE_REL and X11BASE_REL can be used for the
old behavior. The behavior has not been changed in PLIST_SUB.
Note, that the three variables are still overridable with a hack, so this
change doesn't affect POLA, but necessary for DESTDIR support.
* OSVERSION is now determined from the userland, not from the kernel.
Cross-compiling between releases is still not supported, but this
behavior is more correct for jails with differing userland from
the kernel version.
* Add some sanity check for PREFIX and DESTDIR. This can be skipped by
defining IGNORE_PATH_CHECKS, but very discouraged.
* Deinstalling from DESTDIR, determining if a port is already installed in
DESTDIR, etc. are implemented by chrooting those specific commands.
* Text changes to reflect that we are installing to DESTDIR, removing from
DESTDIR, etc.
Note, that this change implements only the infrastructure support. Ports should
also be implemented to respect DESTDIR.

GNOME has been upgraded from 2.10.2 to 2.12.1. This update brings with
it many important porting changes:
- gtk20's pkg-config file no longer contains the X11 pango modules.
Therefore, if your port requires these modules, you may have to
manually patch them in to your port's Makefiles. Contact
gnome@FreeBSD.org if you have questions on this.
- A new USE_GNOME component, ltverhack, has been added. This
pseudo-component hacks libtool so that shared library versions are
more consistent with other operating systems. Using this component
can prevent unnecessary shared library version changes.
- A new macro, INSTALLS_ICONS, has been added. If your port installs
Freedesktop-style icons to ${LOCALBASE}/share/icons or
${X11BASE}/share/icons, then you should use this macro. NOTE:
use of this macro requires your port to set either USE_GNOME or
WANT_GNOME.

- USE_LINUX now implies NO_FILTER_SHLIBS=yes. It also doesn't use FreeBSD
tools to strip binaries anymore, so it's not necessary anymore to override
STRIP and STRIP_CMD.
- USE_LINUX_PREFIX implies NO_MTREE now.
- In the USE_LINUX case, USE_XLIB now depends upon the Linux X11 libraries
instead upon the native FreeBSD libraries.
- The variable LINUX_BASE_PORT contains a string which is suitable as an
item in *_DEPENDS, so if a port BATCH_DEPENDS or FETCH_DEPENDS upon the
default (or overridden) Linux base, ${LINUX_BASE_PORT} should be used
instead of a hardcoded reference.
- If USE_LINUX or OVERRIDE_LINUX_BASE doesn't point to an existing linux_base
port and if USE_LINUX isn't set to "yes" (case insensitive), the port will
be marked as IGNORE.

The CVSup port has been upgraded with a patch to correct the
handling of the "refuse" file for files that are in the CVS Attic.
This solves a problem some people were having, where CVSup would
delete their ports/INDEX* files even though the files were listed
in the "refuse" file. The bug fix is in the cvsupd server, so
mirror sites must upgrade their servers in order for this fix to
help. Meanwhile, adding "ports/Attic/INDEX*" to the refuse file
serves as a work-around.

There has been a big update to PHP ports and bsd.php.mk to add more
flexibility and new features.
Now a port may depend on a specific set of PHP extensions. To do so,
simply replace:
USE_PHP= yes
with:
USE_PHP= ext1 ext2 ext3 ...
in the port Makefile. A list of all PHP extensions is included in bsd.php.mk.
If the requirement is a build dependency too, the port should also define:
USE_PHP_BUILD=yes
Moreover, the new knob WANT_PHP_SCR has been added to indicate that the port
requires the 'php' binary to run.
Last but not least, many common operations to build/install/register a
PHP extension can now be omitted from the port Makefile if it defines:
USE_PHPEXT= yes
For more information on this point and on additional variables, see
bsd.php.mk.

OpenLDAP version 2.2 is now the default.
When your port links against the openldap client libraries use
USE_OPENLDAP= yes

WANT_OPENLDAP_VER and WANT_OPENLDAP_SASL, but these must not
be used in ports Makefiles.

USE_LIBTOOL_VER now configures a port to use the ports version of libtool
instead of its included version. This was put in place to reduce the
number of ad hoc patches to individual ports' libtools to prevent .la
file installation as well as fix various threading problems.
To restore the previous libtool behavior, use the new macro,
USE_INC_LIBTOOL_VER. It works the exact same way as USE_LIBTOOL_VER
in that it takes a libtool version as its argument.
For example, to use the included version of libtool with extra hacks
provided by libtool-1.5, add the following to your Makefile:
USE_INC_LIBTOOL_VER= 15
To use the ports version of libtool-1.5, add the following to
your Makefile:
USE_LIBTOOL_VER= 15
Note: these macros are mutually exclusive. Your port should only include
one or the other if it needs to make use of libtool.

The following behavioral or feature changes were committed:
* Support verbose index builds with INDEX_VERBOSE
* Support glob expressions in USE_GETTEXT to allow more flexibility
in the face of future gratuitous library version bumps by the gettext
developers:
USE_GETTEXT=yEs # Works as before (case-insensitive)
USE_GETTEXT=[5-7] # Accepts any of those libintl.so.x versions
# in the LIB_DEPENDS
* Extend 'make search' support to allow much more flexible searching
From the PR:
Besides the good old key and name variables, this patch adds
support for path, info, maint, cat, bdeps, and rdeps, which match
on the appropriate fields, plus their exclusion counterparts: xkey,
xname, etc.
Examples:
Find all ports whose names contain "pear-" but not "html" or "http":
make search name=pear- xname='ht(tp|ml)'
Find ports whose names contain "pear-" and which don't have apache
listed in build-time dependencies:
make search name=pear- xbdeps=apache
The positive variables (name, key, maint, etc) are AND-ed, their
negative versions are OR-ed; in other words, matching any x-
variable will cause the port to be skipped, mismatch on any non-x-
variable will cause it to be skipped.
Examples:
Find ports that are both in the 'www' category and maintained by
Thierry Thomas:
make search maint=thierry@ path=/www/
Find ports in the 'archivers' category that are either not orphaned
or don't have "zip" in their names (contrived):
make search cat=archivers xmaint=ports@freebsd xname=zip
It is possible to select fields to display.
Example:
Find PEAR ports that don't build-depend on apache, displaying only
Port:, Path:, and Info: lines:
make search name=pear- xbdeps=apache display=name,path,info
Case-sensitivity can now be turned of with icase=1.
Example:
Find ports with @freebsd.org maintainer addresses without the
"proper" capitalization (@FreeBSD.org), display their paths and
maintainer addresses:
make search maint=@freebsd\\.org icase=0 display=maint,path
The key and xkey variables can be limited in scope to displayed fields
by setting keylim to 1.
Example:
Find ports that contain "apache" in either of the name, path, info
fields, ignore the rest of the record (dependencies, maintainer
address, etc):
make search key=apache display=name,path,info keylim=1
The following variables can be set e.g. in /etc/make.conf to
control default search behavior:
PORTSEARCH_DISPLAY_FIELDS?=name,path,info,maint,index,bdeps,rdeps
PORTSEARCH_KEYLIM?=0
PORTSEARCH_XKEYLIM?=0
PORTSEARCH_IGNORECASE?=1
* Extend USE_PERL5_BUILD and USE_PERL5 to add EXTRACT and PATCH
dependencies
* While building index, treat non-existent dependencies as fatal.
Previously the error was being hidden by the stderr
redirection.
* Don't always retry BROKEN ports when package building (it is taking
too much time to continually rebuild ports that are usually going
to really be broken). Set TRYBROKEN if you want to attempt a
build of a BROKEN port.

Over the past few weeks, we have been testing the next
incarnation of ports/Mk/bsd.autotools.mk on the road to bringing
at least some semblance of sanity back to this corner of the
ports collection.
By far and away the easiest way to see the changes will be to
view the new file once committed, but here is a summary of the
changes:
1. USE_LIBTOOL, USE_AUTOCONF, USE_AUTOHEADER, USE_AUTOMAKE have
been fully deprecated. Ports attempting to use these variables
after the commit will error out, and most obviously break INDEX
generation, with a helpful error message. Instead, ports must
now specifically choose the version of any of these tools that
they need with the corresponding USE_*_VER variables. Note that
these variables understand any and all versions of autotools ports
in the tree, there is no longer a need to have specific version
numbers hardcoded in the infrastructure of bsd.autotools.mk
(as there is now). In particular, this will immediately open up
automake18 and autoconf259 for general use and beating.
2. Similarly for WANT_LIBTOOL, WANT_AUTOCONF, and WANT_AUTOMAKE.
Again, these have been fully deprecated, and the equivalent
WANT_*_VER versions should be used.
In order to preserve existing behavior for these variables, please
note the 20040314 entry in ports/CHANGES for the appropriate
version numbers to use for any ports in the GNATS queue.
Both WANT_* and USE_* bring in the relevant tool as a build
dependency, and set up a reasonably large number of variables
pointing to the right programs to be using in the port. The
only difference at the moment, is that USE_* will run an extra
autotools-related configuration step, whereas WANT_* merely
requests the environment.
3. The helper knob USE_LIBLTDL has been added which currently
simply adds a LIB dependency on the libltdl port.
4. Three new variables have been introduced,
WANT_{LIBTOOL,AUTOCONF,AUTOMAKE}_RUN=yes. These variables will
do nothing by themselves (a Work-In-Progress), but if the
appropriate autotool version is defined (either through
WANT_*_VER or USE_*_VER), this will add the relevant dependency
to RUN_DEPENDS.
Steps 3 and 4 now essentially negate the need for any kind of
direct dependency within a non-autotools port Makefile on
devel/autoconf*, devel/automake*, devel/libtool*, and devel/libltdl.

There has been a couple of bsd.java.mk tweaks and fixes.
. Features from Stage 2 has been removed. A port can no
longer use the JDK dependency features by setting JAVA_HOME.
Use JAVA_PREFERRED_PORT instead (see below).
. The default JDK port now depends on OS version:
java/diablo-jdk13 for 4.x, and java/jdk14 for 5.x
. It is now possible for the user (and the porters) to
define a list of preferred JDK ports to build and run ports.
The port will use the first JDK port from the list that
matches the requirements specified in the Makefile.
JAVA_PREFERRED_PORT contains a list of suitable JDK ports
(sorted by preference). Names for JDKs may be found in
bsd.java.mk, listed in ${_JAVA_PORTS_ALL} (e.g.
"JAVA_PORT_NATIVE_BSDJAVA_1_4").
. JAVA_PORT_VERSION is now set to the full version number
of the chosen JDK (e.g. "1.4.2"). Porters will find hints
regarding how to obtain the same behavior as before in the
header of bsd.java.mk.

When writing a port that uses GTK+ 2.X, you can now list the dependency
with "USE_GNOME=gtk20" which is preferable to LIB_DEPENDS because the
GTK+ library version only needs to be changed in bsd.gnome.mk.

the available GNOME components as well as detailed instructions on
creating ports that use the GNOME infrastructure.

The glib20 and gtk20 ports were updated to 2.4.0. This new version
is completely source and binary compatible with the previous 2.2.x
series. However, certain API calls have been deprecated. If your
port defines the following macros, they may refuse to build with
the new versions of glib20 and gtk20:
GTK_DISABLE_DEPRECATED
GDK_DISABLE_DEPRECATED
G_DISABLE_DEPRECATED
The temporary solution is to either patch your port's Makefiles to,
or use an in-place regular expression to remove these macros. The
more permanent solution is to wait until the port's authors update
their code to use current API calls.

There has been a big update to bsd.java.mk. However, this update
is mostly backwards compatible, so it shouldn't affect most java
port maintainers. There is some new functionality and minor
changes worth documenting here though.
bsd.java.mk now provides a new set of macros to be used by ports that
require a JDK. When USE_JAVA is set, the following variables may be set
in order to give to precision regarding the requirements of the port:
. JAVA_VERSION
A list of space-separated suitable java versions for the
port. An optional "+" allows you to specify a range of versions.
(allowed values: 1.1[+] 1.2[+] 1.3[+] 1.4[+])
(NOTE: Used to be set by bsd.java.mk)
. JAVA_OS
A list of space-separated suitable JDK port operating systems
for the port. (allowed values: native linux)
(NOTE: Used to be set by bsd.java.mk)
. JAVA_VENDOR
A list of space-separated suitable JDK port vendors for
the port. (allowed values: freebsd bsdjava sun ibm blackdown)
(NOTE: Used to be set by bsd.java.mk)
. JAVA_BUILD
When set, it means that the selected JDK port should be
added to build dependencies for the port.
. JAVA_RUN
This variable works exactly the same as JAVA_BUILD but
regarding run dependencies.
Here are some of the macros defined after setting USE_JAVA:
. JAVA_PORT
The name of the JDK port (e.g. java/jdk14)
. JAVA_HOME
The home of the JDK port in the local base
. JAVA_PORT_VERSION
The version of the JDK port.
(NOTE: Used to be JAVA_VERSION, see above)
. JAVA_PORT_OS
The operating system used by the JDK port.
(NOTE: Used to be JAVA_OS, see above)
. JAVA_PORT_VENDOR
The vendor of the JDK port.
(NOTE: Used to be JAVA_VENDOR, see above)
Plus many macros for the commonly used java executables:
APPLETVIEWER, JAR, JAVA, JAVAC, JAVADOC, JAVAH,
JAVAP, JAVA_KEYTOOL, JAVA_N2A, JAVA_POLICYTOOL,
JAVA_SERIALVER, RMIC, RMID and RMIREGISTRY.
bsd.java.mk 2.0 is mostly backward compatible with the previous
version, save for the notes above and changed internal variables.
Using the new features is strongly encouraged, since the old
bsd.java.mk 1.0 features will be deprecated and may be removed in
the future.

The old "system default" behavior can be written as follows:

Users on the i386 platform need to follow the instructions
described in the UPDATING file to cope with this upgrade.

Mozilla will now default to using GTK2, and will only compile
against Gtk+-1.2 if explicitly requested. This is in exact
opposite to the old behavior.
The valid values of WITH_MOZILLA are now:
mozilla (www/mozilla, GTK2)
mozilla-devel (www/mozilla-devel, GTK2)
mozilla-gtk1 (www/mozilla-gtk1, GTK1)
mozilla-devel-gtk1 (www/mozilla-devel-gtk1, GTK1)
As before, WITH_MOZILLA can be set in /etc/make.conf, but doing
so is not advised unless you desire the development versions.
GTK2 browsers will automatically compile against GTK2 mozilla,
and GTK1 browsers (galeon1, galeon1, and galeon1) will
automatically compile against GTK1.
Again, the only people who will need to take action are those
who desire development versions (which are inactive at this time
anyway). Those who want GTK1 mozilla-devel must set
WITH_MOZILLA=mozilla-devel-gtk1 or they will be pleasantly
surprised with their very own GTK2 installation on the next
update.
WITH_MOZILLA=mozilla-gtk2 and WITH_MOZILLA=mozilla-devel-gtk2
are still honored for the time being, but their use is
now deprecated. Any new ports are not required to consider
their values, and so eventually WITH_MOZILLA _will_ have to
be changed.
Hopefully galeon2 can catch up to peoples' expectations from
galeon1 soon, and we can remove the GTK1 ports altogether.

The bsd.php.mk file has been moved out of the lang/php4 port
into the Mk directory. This will make it much easier to include
PHP support in PHP-dependent ports. Instead of including
bsd.php.mk directly, a port can simply set USE_PHP=yes, and the
ports system with Do the Right Thing.
All trailing whitespace has been removed from bsd.port.mk.
Enhance the new OPTIONS code by only including saved options if
the port defines OPTIONS, attempt to use LATEST_LINK as the
unique name for a port (fall back to ${PKGNAMEPREFIX}${PORTNAME}
otherwise), bring the ===> messages in line with the existing
ones by using PKGNAME instead of PORTNAME, use PKGNAME in the
dialog, use ECHO_CMD instead of ECHO_MSG to write the
OPTIONSFILE, display a message during compilation indicating
that user-specified options have been found, and make the output
of the showconfig target a little more user-friendly.
A new USE_ICONV macro has been added that takes the place of an
explicit LIB_DEPENDS on converters/libiconv. This will help
with future shared lib version bumps.
A new USE_GETTEXT macro has been added that takes the place of
an explicit LIB_DEPENDS on devel/gettext. This will help with
future shared lib version bumps.
Module::Build is a system for building, testing, and installing
Perl modules. It will eventually replace the obsoleted
ExtUtils::MakeMaker. Many new Perl modules have already
switched to using Build.PL instead of Makefile.PL. To
facilitate building those modules, a new PERL_MODBUILD macro has
been added. Use that in place of PERL_CONFIGURE when porting
Perl modules that make use of the Module::Build framework.
Certain ports want to check for the availability of SDL
libraries before including them. This change adds a new
WANT_SDL macro similar to WANT_GNOME. By setting this, the
porter indicates that her port can optional use SDL if present
on the system. WANT_SDL should be defined _before_
bsd.port.pre.mk is included. After including bsd.port.pre.mk,
the list of available SDL components will be returned in the
HAVE_SDL macro. For details on how to process this component
list, refer to bsd.sdl.mk.
The OpenBSD and NetBSD projects diverged from the FreeBSD ports
tree years ago, and it no longer make sense to include obsolete
references to incorrect paths in the FreeBSD ports system. This
change removes the NetBSD and OpenBSD PORTSDIR compatibility
bits from bsd.port.mk.
The comment for PKGDIR read, ``A direction containing any
package creating file.'' The word ``direction'' should be
``directory.'' This has been fixed.
A new DIRNAME macro has been added that points to
/usr/bin/dirname. All direct use of dirname in ports can be
switched to this macro.
Direct use of commands dirname, id, and rm have been corrected
to use their macro equivalents instead. Some useless ${HEAD}
-n 1 statements have been removed. A strange comment in the
do-install target and an out of place ``fi'' have been fixed as
well.
On 5-CURRENT after the 5.2-RELEASE split, the default Perl
version has been updated from 5.6.1 to 5.8.2. As well, some
Perl definitions in bsd.port.mk have been moved to their correct
locations which corrects the PERL_LEVEL definition.
The following optimizations have been added to the ports system
to speed up recursive operations such as make describe, make
index, make ignorelist, etc. bsd.gnome.mk is now only included
if a port defines USE_GNOME, WANT_GNOME, and/or USE_GTK. More
variables are cached and passed down through bsd.port.subdir.mk.
Perl is no longer invoked when a simple ``echo'' will do. More
subshell variable assignments have been hidden behind
conditionals so that the commands are not spawned every time.
Finally, dependency lists are only constructed if ports actually
declare dependencies. These optimizations give make index
approximately a 43% speedup.
If CPUFLAGS is not defined (this _CPUCFLAGS is empty), trying
to remove _CPUCFLAGS from CFLAGS will result in an error. This
change fixes that.
On recent versions of 5.X, /etc/rc.subr exists, and there is no
reason to install another copy in ${LOCALBASE}/etc. The reason
this was ever done was to workaround some build issues on bento.
However, testing OSVERSION seems to work in spite of those build
issues.
The ports system now supports MySQL 3.23, 4.0, 4.1, and 5.0.
Also, the ability to scale to newer versions was also but in
place.
An .endif comment indicated that the .if block checked
WANT_MYSQL when, in fact, it was checking WANT_MYSQL_VER. This
has been corrected.
The PTHREAD{CFLAGS,LIBS} macros have been made overridable on
all versions of FreeBSD to allow for alternate threading
implementations (e.g. -lc_r, -lthr, -mt, etc.). The default
threading library has been changed to -lpthread from -lc_r on
-CURRENT.
The new SIZE support broke distfiles fetching on FreeBSD < 4.8.
On those versions of FreeBSD, the SIZE distfile attribute is now
ignored. Also, defining DISABLE_SIZE in, for example,
/etc/make.conf, will ignore the SIZE attribute on all versions
of FreeBSD. This is useful with alternate values for FETCH_CMD.
A new vulnerabilities database has been added to the ports
system in order to keep more accurate, up-to-date, track of
security vulnerabilities. The ports system now knows how to
query that database and dynamically prevents the installation
of vulnerable ports.
In order to allow for more rapid development of the package
tools, the ports system will prefer to use pkg_* tools found in
${LOCALBASE} over those in the base system. However, all PKG_*
macros are still overridable.
A new physical category, net-mgmt, has been created to house
network management ports.
The /var/db/port.mkversion file never really took off, and is
now very obsolete. Replace the code used to generate and check
this file with a simple OSVERSION check. The ports system now
requires FreeBSD 4.3 or higher.
The last round of bsd.*.mk changes broke ports that had
duplicate distinfo entries (e.g. linux_base). This is now
fixed. Along with this fix, only distfiles with a bad checksum
will be refetched, where as distfiles missing from distinfo will
not be refetched.
The PLIST_{DIRS,FILES} macros were passed to the final package
list unchanged by PLIST_SUB. This is not always desirable.
Now, those macros are passed through PLIST_SUB.
The previous OPTIONS code assumed users would be running port
build as root. If this was not the case, OPTIONS configuration
would fail. Now, the bits of the config and rmconfig targets
that require write access to system directories are run under
SU_CMD.
The makesum target will now add a SIZE attribute for each
distfile by default. This can be overridden by defining NO_SIZE
in a port's Makefile. Note: this could probably be expanded to
omit SIZE attributes for specific distfiles in the future.

AUTHOR: trevor@FreeBSD.org
SIZE lines in distinfo files: if you set USE_SIZE when you do "make
makesum", the byte sizes of the distfiles will be listed in the
distinfo file. Then, if a distfile is replaced on its master site with
one of a different size than that listed, "make fetch" will fail with a
"size mismatch" error before downloading the file and the user will be
asked to fetch the file by hand. Also, a user will know the size of
the distfiles before fetching and decide to fetch later.
