Description Mikhail Teterin freebsd_committer 2015-02-06 06:42:38 UTC
Upstream's tarball includes up-to-date man-pages. These should be installed -- unconditionally.

The generated HTML-documentation is largely redundant and not useful -- once you reached for the browser, you may as well read the latest version online.

Not rebuilding the docs in this particular case is also useful for a different reason: it removes the dependency on dtplite (from devel/tcllib), which will allow tcllib depend on critcl instead and compile C-code included with tcllib (see Bug 195863).

gahr@, does reassigning the ticket to me imply, you trust my judgement on this one?
Comment 4 Pietro Cerutti freebsd_committer 2015-02-08 17:01:36 UTC
mi@, of course I do, given that you've got quite some background on Tcl/Tk ports. Also, since I've been handling most Tcl/Tk stuff myself lately, assigning this to you explicitly was also a mean to say "I'm quite busy right now, please do as you think it's best". Sorry for not being clear enough.

  Install bundled man-pages.

  Remove the DOCS-option -- there is nothing in the HTML-documentation, that
  man-pages do not contain, but regenerating the docs required dtplite.
