Description stolz 2004-01-22 18:00:29 UTC
From /usr/share/Mk/bsd.java.mk:

# The default value for NEED_JAVAC is temporarily (!) YES
# This will change as soon as the affecting ports have NEED_JAVAC=YES
.               if !defined(NEED_JAVAC)
.               endif

Obviously NEED_JAVAC defaults to NO. Either to comment above is incorrect
or the default setting is. The comment in rev. 1.9 clearly indicates that the
default changed to NO deliberately.


Remove offending comment.
How-To-Repeat: Trying to use ${JAVAC} in a port-makefile without setting NEED_JAVAC to "yes" first
leaves ${JAVAC} undefined.
