Description Tobias Kortkamp freebsd_committer 2019-02-20 23:05:52 UTC
USES=python should complain if there are unknown components in
USE_PYTHON.  At the moment everything is just silently accepted.

For example

USE_PYTHON=	autoplist distutlls

is accepted, but it should be an error (distutlls should be distutils here)
since it doesn't really do anything

There is only a finite list of acceptable keywords for USE_PYTHON,
so it should be possible to check this and refuse the build if there
are unknown keywords in it.

Sounds like something that's very worth doing across the framework in a single bug (or multiple issues under a meta bug), for all USE_*'s / Uses/* component arguments.
