Description Daan K. 2014-10-11 19:36:03 UTC
The new make.conf options described here:

https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-ports-announce/2013-June/000062.html

Are not yet in the manpage for make.conf.

Comment 2 Benjamin Kaduk freebsd_committer 2014-10-17 02:48:16 UTC
make.conf.5 contains the following section:

   BUILDING PORTS
     Several make variables can be set that affect the building of ports.
     These variables and their effects are documented in ports(7),
     ${PORTSDIR}/Mk/* and the FreeBSD Porter's Handbook.

make.conf.5 is not the most appropriate place to document variables like OPTIONS_SET which only affect ports builds.  The particular variables in question are probably appropriate for ports.7, though, so I have retitled accordingly.

Thanks for clearing that up, as I am fairly new to FreeBSD I didn't know about the FreeBSD Porter's Handbook. :)

Whoops, I did not mean to close it just yet. Sorry.

Return the issue to the pool.
