Description Vsevolod Stakhov freebsd_committer 2017-06-05 09:26:57 UTC
Ragel requires latex to build docs. It is completely insane to require that by default just to use Ragel as a build dependency. Could you please disable this option by default to improve users' experiences.

Comment 2 Walter Schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2018-01-16 12:55:16 UTC
Makefile shows:

DOCS_USE=               TEX=latex:build

seems fixed. Could be closed.
Comment 3 Vsevolod Stakhov freebsd_committer 2018-10-22 12:22:18 UTC
I'm sorry to say but it is not fixed. Ragel still requires latex to be built from the sources.
