Description Trond.Endrestol 2021-07-26 08:00:11 UTC
For completion it would be nice to have PKG_COMPRESSION_LEVEL as a companion to PKG_COMPRESSION_FORMAT. Thus, it becomes easier to specify the wanted compression level, be it best, or fast, or a numerical value.



The current workaround is to use in /etc/make.conf or an equivalent file:

PKG_CREATE_ARGS+=	-l <level>



Both PKG_COMPRESSION_FORMAT and PKG_COMPRESSION_LEVEL should be documented at around line 1004.
