Description Ganael LAPLANCHE 2008-05-24 21:50:03 UTC
As discussed in this thread :


bsd.linux-rpm.mk ignores PORTDOCS and NOPORTDOCS variables. A port using USE_LINUX_RPM will have *every* files in WRKDIR (including documentation) installed.

This leads to incorrect plist generation when both NOPORTDOCS and PORTDOCS are defined : the do-install target of bsd.linux-rpm.mk will unconditionally install documentation files, while the plist file will not include them if NOPORTDOCS is defined. When deinstalling the port, if NOPORTDOCS has been defined, documentation files are left installed.

The attached patch removes PORTDOCS from WRKDIR at pre-patch stage if NOPORTDOCS is defined, so that documentation files will not be installed.

Note : As far as I can see, 3 ports are involved in such a situation :
- archivers/linux-par2cmdline
- graphics/linux-png
- graphics/linux-png10

Fix: Patch attached with submission follows:
How-To-Repeat: cd /usr/ports/archivers/linux-par2cmdline
make -DNOPORTDOCS install
make -DNOPORTDOCS deinstall
ls /compat/linux/usr/share/doc/par2cmdline-0.4

The last command shows documentation has been installed and left behind after deinstallation.

bsd.linux-rpm.mk is emulation territory (via the GNATS Auto Assign Tool)
