upgrading ports/pkgs, and noted this:
New packages to be INSTALLED:
Installed packages to be UPGRADED:
p5-DBD-mysql: 4.050 -> 4.050_1
so, upgrading p5-DBD-mysql brings in 10 new packages that are not needed otherwise on the system. I try to keep my systems as clean as possible, so if this happens I try to find out why.
The change in p5-DBD-mysql is to enable SSL by default, which activates a dependency to p5-Crypt-SSLeay - so far, ok.
Now, why does the rest happen?
BUILD_DEPENDS= p5-LWP-Protocol-https>=6.02:www/p5-LWP-Protocol-https \
which I find surprising - p5-Crypt-SSLeay used to be a dependency of LWP::Protocol::https, not "the other way round".
I tried to find a reason in the code ("grep -R ^use work") but as far as I could see it only mentions LWP::UserAgent in the documentation, and even mentions that one does not need Crypt::SSLeay anymore(!) to get https support in LWP - because it was unbundled to LWP::Protocol::https (as a replacement, not dependency).
I tried to remove the DEPENDS setting, and it seems to build and test same way as with the dependency...
Long story short - can you please check whether this BUILD_DEPENDS/RUN_DEPENDS to p5-LWP-Protocol-https is needed anymore?
