Description jan.grant 2006-10-05 21:00:40 UTC
/usr/ports/security/stunnel/pkg-deinstall says:

    if [ -z "${PACKAGE_BUILDING}" -a -z "${BATCH}" ]; then
        read -p "${question} [${default}]? " answer

Neither environment variable is typically set. In particular, BATCH=yes may be a _make_ variable (and my pkgtools.conf has this:)

       '*/*' => 'BATCH=yes',

which works with every other port. I don't know if there is actually an environment variable you might make use of, but this behaviour could do with documenting.


Well, a workaround is to supply an appropriate environment as well as the makevar in pkgtools.conf; don't know if this could be engineered to occur in a makefile; I document this in case anyone else bumps into it.
How-To-Repeat: portupgrade -f security/stunnel

  FreeBSD ports repository

  Modified files:
    security/stunnel     Makefile 
  Removed files:
    security/stunnel     pkg-deinstall 
  Fix the problem with unattended deinstallation by not even attempting
  to remove the stunnel user and group at all - just kill the package
  deinstall script.

I just committed a change to the stunnel port - now it will no longer 
try to remove the stunnel user and group, ever. 
Thanks for reporting this - actually long-standing - problem!
