Description Seva Gluschenko 2003-12-25 13:20:14 UTC
	CUPS (common UNIX printing system) has the following configure switches:
	--with-perl	Enable Perl interpreter interface
	--with-php	Enable PHP interpreter interface
	--with-python	Enable Python interpreter interface

	which neither can be selected by port building tunables. Proposed patch
	addresses this problem.

	Also, while stating WANT_AUTOCONF_VER=253 clause in Makefile, CUPS doesn't
	really need autoconf to be built.

Fix: Apply patch below, then cd to print/cups-base and type make WITH_PERL=yes or
	WITH_PHP=yes or WITH_PYTHON=yes (whatever you might find suitable for your

	Apply patch:

	cd /usr/ports
	patch < /path/to/this_message

	The patch itself follows.

	N.B.: I haven't PHP installed, just guessing it has "php" executable, so
	actual RUN_DEPENDS for WITH_PHP tunable might differ.
How-To-Repeat: 	CVSup the latest print/cups (and print/cups-base) port and try to make cups-base,
	then break the build at the configure stage, cd to work/cups-* and try
	./configure --help. You'll notice the tunables described above.

Do we really need a knob for WITH_PERL, since we depend on Perl by default? 
Also, for python, we should use USE_PYTHON, I think.

How about:

skull(/usr/ports/print/cups) [1027] > grep PERL5 *
Makefile:USE_PERL5=     yes
Makefile.common:USE_PERL5_RUN=  yes

| whatever, I don't care. Just named it for convenience.

I meant using USE_PYTHON=yes to depend on python instead of
putting an explicit *_DEPENDS line.
