Description Ed Maste freebsd_committer 2018-11-05 23:47:39 UTC
sys/capability.h will be removed before FreeBSD 13. The (now) correct header to use on all supported versions of FreeBSD is sys/capsicum.h; there's no need for autoconf checks etc. to check for both.

r340171 referenced this PR by accident; the intent was to reference PR 228878.

Comment 4 Ed Maste freebsd_committer 2019-02-25 18:35:40 UTC
The upstream change is not yet in a pkg release. Is a new release coming soon? pkg is now the only holdout preventing the removal of sys/capability.h.
Comment 5 Baptiste Daroussin freebsd_committer 2019-06-18 14:00:14 UTC
pkg 1.11 does not use sys/capability.h anymore
