Description joeb1 2015-07-02 12:43:12 UTC
Problem doing "make install" on links port to change the ports build options removing x11 and turning on vga so it will run from console command line. Have been doing this since FBSD version 3.0. Ten days ago Revision 390310 introduced logic errors into the Makefile. 

With Revision 390310 the "pkg" port is now a dependent which is totally incorrect. The compile stops because its looking for the pkg port in the ports tree. pkg is bootstrapped installed already.

Secondly all the dependents are now required to be in the ports tree. This was not the case in the previously version of the Makefile. 

The current Makefile is looking in the ports tree to verify if dependents are available in the ports tree and stops the compile if not so. This new behavior is incorrect since the new pkg command became included in the base system. 

It should first be looking in "pkg info" to see if dependent is already installed as a binary and if so bypass the ports tree check. 

It should NOT be forcing the compiling all the dependents as default methodology now that pkg is being promoted as method of choose. 

Please Back out Revision 390310 so the compile returns to working correctly with the pkg methodology.
