Description Enji Cooper freebsd_committer 2010-03-03 08:00:12 UTC
The following patch removes all /etc/group and /etc/master.passwd entries based on MK_* variables defined when running make distribution on etc.

This patch uses goals for group and master.passwd in order to not whack existing files that may have been setup after ports were installed, and thus potentially break already installed packages.

mergemaster(1) is exempt from this because DESTDIR is set to somewhere off in /var/tmp/[...] and a diff is run against the running system <-> sysroot's files before it's installed in the sysroot, IFF the individual deletes the temproot between each run (or whatever the term was that mergemaster(1) uses...).


See proposed enhancement patch.
