Description knezour 2018-02-05 17:33:54 UTC
I am unable to find any documentation for FLAVORS recently added to the ports/packages infrastructure from the end user point of view. Only the Porters Handbook contains some info.

To add insult to injury, from /usr/ports/UPDATING two month ago:

  [...]
  Flavors are already supported by make, pkg, poudriere, and synth; see the
  manpages for those tools for usage instructions. 

I am using first two tools from the list and guess what? I saw them and now I am writing this bug report :)
