Is there a decent way to somehow express a circular dependancy to the
ports tree? Basically, if you were to choose standard packages without
flavors, everything would be fine. But, depending on how the order of
packages are built, it could cause a problem. An example follows:
I have setup cyrus-sasl2 to have a ldap flavor (I will submit a patch
for this once I get a chance to do some more testing). This flavor
enabled saslauthd to authenticate against an ldap database.
When openldap is upgraded to 2.1.x, it will probably support a sasl2
This would leave you with the following set of combinations:
openldap && cyrus-sasl2 == ok
(openldap w/ sasl2) && cyrus-sasl2 == ok
openldap && (cyrus-sasl2 w/ ldap) == ok
(openldap w/ sasl2) && (cyrus-sasl2 w/ ldap) == bad*
Since I'm not sure how the packages are built to be put up on the ftp
server for a release (automated, manual, combination?), I wasn't sure
if the make system would deal with this.
* actually it is doable, but a total pain, and why would you want this?
