Description Timothy Beyer 2009-03-02 03:30:01 UTC
This patch makes the following changes:

Adds LATEST_LINK to ports: lang/tcl84, lang/tcl85, lang/tcl86

The reason for these patches is because without this patch, the three tcl ports mentioned may overwrite the shared port options file in /var/db/ports/tcl/options when configuration options are updated for any of those ports.  Since it is legitimate and common for these ports to be installed in parallel, each port should use it's own separate directory for the options file, and the way to do this is via the LATEST_LINK variable.  Without this patch, scripts that mass configure ports that have new port options added will not generally work for TCL based ports, because each time the most recent tcl configuration may override previous tcl configurations.

This patch solves this issue completely, without resorting to appending new options to the existing /var/db/ports/tcl/options

Fix: The following patches:
