Description Matthieu Volat 2012-02-16 17:20:09 UTC
Right now, the print/cups-base allows to have printer discovery only
through the net/avahi-libdns compat port.

As the discovery seems to be developed around the net/mDNSResponder API,
it should be safe to allow dnssd support through this port in addition
of net/avahi-libdns version.

Since both ports are conflicting, there is no fear of mixing up the library used.

More : using net/mDNSResponder actually works (instead of hitting avahi bugs)


Create a build option using avahi-libdns and another using mDNSResponder,
specifying that both are mutually exclusives.

They uses almost the same configure options, the only difference being
--with-dnssd-includes=${LOCALBASE}/include/ instead of
How-To-Repeat: make config in print/cups-base
