11 pkgsrc has changed to use unprivileged staged installation by default.
12 This makes it possible to prevent some installation mistakes.
13 It also makes detection of package conflicts easier.
14 Previously you had to set PKG_DESTDIR_SUPPORT to "user-destdir"
15 to invoke this functionality. Set PKG_DESTDIR_SUPPORT to "none"
16 to revert to direct installation.

2008-04-13 Add a NEWS blob about PLIST_VARS.
24 PLIST_VARS introduced [jlam 20080413]
25 PLIST_VARS is a simpler way to do conditional PLIST entries.
26 The old method of doing e.g. PLIST_SUBST+= FOO="@comment " can
27 now be done by unconditionally setting PLIST_VARS+=foo and
28 conditionally setting PLIST.foo=yes. This will result in substitution
29 of ${PLIST.foo} in the PLIST with either "" or "@comment ".

2008-02-27 + CHECK_STRIPPED.
35 Check for stripped/unstripped binaries [rillig 20080213]
36 A new check has been added in mk/check/check-stripped.mk to
37 assure that the installed binaries conform to the setting of the
38 INSTALL_UNSTRIPPED variable. It is not enabled by default due to
39 lack of testing.
