nestopia libretro

I don't know if an option or a sub-package should be better. Anyway, here is the addition of the libretro support for nestopia. Thanks OpenBSD for the steps to build it.
Comment 1 Nathan 2018-09-12 22:23:16 UTC
I would tend to lean more toward option instead of forced, but that's just me. When I do port related stuff I tend to give option, as I view it gives choice instead of forcing it onto someone
Comment 2 Nathan 2018-09-12 22:26:26 UTC
So you could in this case do:
        cd ${WRKSRC}/libretro && gmake
        ${MKDIR} ${STAGEDIR}${PREFIX}/lib/libretro
	${INSTALL_DATA} ${WRKSRC}/libretro/nestopia_libretro.so \
Comment 3 Nathan 2018-09-12 22:27:53 UTC
Also if it only needs gmake for libretro
LIBRETRO_USES=     gmake

All this is if options is chosen way to go
Comment 4 Neel Chauhan 2018-09-15 01:36:05 UTC
I am on the same boat as Nathan: an option instead of forced.

Why? some people may want libretro, others may want a stripped down system with only the essentials, we shouldn't force one configuration (unlike what's done with SystemD).
Comment 5 Loïc Bartoletti freebsd_committer 2018-09-15 07:36:59 UTC
I can agree with you, as mentioned, I don't know what is the better option :)
Maybe sub-packages as OpenBSD, but we don't have (yet) sub-packages.

Feel free to change it or I send you the modified version this week.
