Description Gerald Pfeifer freebsd_committer 2020-02-27 21:35:34 UTC
emulators/wine-devel as of revision r527076 lacks a description for the
STAGING options.  I'll fix that shortly, but was surprised neither the
ports infrastructure nor portlint warned about this.

Put into a shell script the following code does that job:

   if make showconfig | grep -v === | grep -v : ; then
       echo "'make showconfig' has option(s) without a description."

Thank you, Joe!

I notice the following in lang/gcc8-devel after this (on both i386 and amd64):

   lang/gcc8-devel> portlint -C
   FATAL: Makefile: OPTION MULTILIB does not have a description (MULTILIB_DESC).
   FATAL: Makefile: OPTION MULTILIB does not have a description (MULTILIB_DESC).

The message is issued twice.

And MULTILIB_DESC is actually set where it is relevant, via

   .if exists(/usr/lib32/libc.so)
   OPTIONS_DEFINE_amd64+=          MULTILIB
   OPTIONS_DEFINE_powerpc64+=      MULTILIB
   MULTILIB_DESC=          Build support for 32-bit and 64-bit targets
