I will hijack this PR a bit to give a feedback about -nox11 version of this port.
I am using -nox11 version of the port since a longer time and in the past upgrades went fine. With the version 11.1 something broke, so up till now I have been using open-vm-tools-nox11-11.0.1_3 (released 06 Feb 2020) locked with pkg lock.
I am running STABLE, so I installed it from ports. The upgrade from 11.0 to 11.1 required building a lot of dependencies, so stalled upgrades since then. Now, after upgrading to 13.0-STABLE I probably had to build this port (emulators/open-vm-tools-nox11). I had to build and install enormous amount of software (please see below). I would skip this, but I was told that the guest tools are apparently required by vmware vcenter.
The list of packages installed to build the port:
Is there any way to cut this list a bit?
Ought the pkg be used on systems running STABLE?
The docs switched to doxygen a few releases back. Turn off docs and the deps list gets way shorter.
