Description neil 2017-08-19 11:08:08 UTC
Just updated to FreeBSD-11.1-RELEASE and as part of the process updated mariadb101-client to 10.1.26

Previously my system only relied on readline but this update installed libedit as an additional dependency.

Looking at databases/mariadb101-server/Makefile there is an unconditional USES of libedit for both server and client cases but later there is a conditional USES of readline for the client case.

I know that the build process will have rules for selecting one only of the two available libraries but it seems unnecessary to pull in a redundant dependency.

Perhaps, like other ports, some OPTIONS could be provided to specify which of libedit or readline is to be used.

Please only use Maintainer feedback when there's a patch.
Maintainers will be notified of, and are expected to respond to, bugs.

Please, feedback to the "problem", if it is one (I think so, readline and libedit are not usual).

I think this also happens with 10.3 ?
