Description Ganael LAPLANCHE 2006-11-30 13:30:19 UTC
Here is a new page for 'Dos and don'ts' describing the problem encountered in PR/105868 related to auto-detections in a configure script. It explains why it is important for a porter to explicitly add --without- or --disable- options when a functionality is disabled.

Fix: Patch attached with submission follows:

Responsible Changed
From-To: freebsd-doc->pav

Take; the idea is good but I'd like to rewrite the wording first.
Comment 2 Pav Lucistnik freebsd_committer 2006-11-30 20:08:12 UTC
State Changed
From-To: open->closed

Good idea to talk about this.  I took the liberty of rewriting the text, adding 
some examples. 

Also I have put it into the 5.11 Makefile Options section, where it belongs, 
instead of Dos and Don't section.
