Description Ivan Rozhuk 2018-03-12 14:54:55 UTC
Man make.conf say:
                   (str) Set to a list of modules to exclude from the build.
                   This provides a somewhat easier way to exclude modules you
                   are certain you will never need than specifying
                   MODULES_OVERRIDE.  This is applied after MODULES_OVERRIDE.
I use it to not build some kernel modules.

These ports fail/show warning about WITHOUT_MODULES.

lang/tcl86 - warning:
/!\ WARNING /!\

WITHOUT_MODULES is unsupported, use WITHOUT=MODULES on the command line, or
one of these in /etc/make.conf, OPTIONS_UNSET+=MODULES to set it globally,
or lang_tcl86_UNSET+=MODULES for only this port.

www/apache24 - error:
===>  apache24-2.4.29 : Error from apache.mk. WITH(OUT)_MODULES has been
removed, use www_apache24_(UN)SET.
*** Error code 1

What I should do to build ports and not build some kernel modules?
Comment 1 Pietro Cerutti freebsd_committer 2018-03-12 15:03:43 UTC
This suggests that MODULES is not a usable option name for a port (lang/tcl86) and WITHOUT_MODULES is not a usable variable name within ports/Mk machinery (bsd.apache.mk).

Is this expected / wanted?
Comment 2 Ivan Rozhuk 2018-03-12 16:24:32 UTC

I read man make.conf and set WITHOUT_MODULES=.... in /etc/make.conf.
Now this broke apache24.

Some one from FreeBSD or ports team should rename or add some hacks to avoid same name usage conflict.
Comment 3 Scott S 2018-03-18 02:01:45 UTC
I ran into this issue when upgrading from 10.4 to 11.1 as well when doing the post upgrade package/port reinstall.
Comment 4 Jochen Neumeister freebsd_committer 2018-03-25 17:46:36 UTC
is the problem with apache24-2.4.33 still?
Comment 5 Ivan Rozhuk 2018-03-25 22:43:47 UTC
(In reply to Jochen Neumeister from comment #4)

root@rimwks# cd /usr/ports/www/apache24
root@rimwks# make
===>  apache24-2.4.33 : Error from apache.mk. WITH(OUT)_MODULES has been
removed, use www_apache24_(UN)SET.
*** Error code 1

Mine /etc/make.conf contain:


# Other drivers
WITHOUT_MODULES+= bktr bktr_mem cardbus cbb cmx exca fdc firewire pccard rp scd smapi xenhvm 

and more WITHOUT_MODULES+=, but at least one is enough to reproduce.
Comment 6 Ivan Rozhuk 2018-03-26 10:24:19 UTC
This is not apache specific thing.

At least lang/tcl86 affected, probably some other ports too:

IMHO better solution is rename *MODULES to *KMODULES or *KERNEL_MODULES in make.conf file and allow to use MODULES in ports.
Another way is forbid MODULES use in ports.
Comment 7 Mathieu Arnold freebsd_committer 2018-03-26 12:49:14 UTC
Or put everything related to the source build in /etc/src.conf.
Comment 8 Bernard Spil freebsd_committer 2018-03-27 13:44:16 UTC
Looking at it, this has always been a problematic thing... The variables in /etc/make.conf affect both base and ports. If modules happen to have overlapping names this will lead to unexpected behavior.

As man src.conf says "source build options" that is where I would expect that we document WITH_/WITHOUT_MODULES. Should we assign this to docs@?

Additionally, I think we should mark both WITH_ and WITHOUT_MODULES as UNSUPPORTED in Mk/bsd.sanity.mk. Now there's checks that emit the warning as seen in the opening Description for lang/tcl86. For the www/apache24 ports we set then to IGNORE in the ports framework.
Comment 9 Bernard Spil freebsd_committer 2018-03-27 13:46:41 UTC
And references to /etc/make.conf in handbook too

  lang/tcl85, lang/tcl86: remove MODULES option

  MODULES conflict with WITHOUT_MODULES from make.conf (see bug 226557).
  Moreover, they don't require any additional dependencies and their cost in
  terms of size is small wrt the total size of these ports.

Comment 11 Mathieu Arnold freebsd_committer 2018-03-27 14:34:47 UTC
Note that like the warning says, using WITH_opt / WITHOUT_opt is not supported.


Especially, it will not enable or disable an <opt> option.

So the update to tcl was unwarranted.
Comment 12 Pietro Cerutti freebsd_committer 2018-03-27 14:36:46 UTC
Well, I have been kind of willing to remove this option anyway - if you look at the alpha lang/tcl87, it doesn't have it. I think this bug popped up just at the right moment to make me decide to eventually do it. It won't do any harm.
