Description edwin 2004-12-22 05:30:29 UTC
Today I had a port which installed its docs into
/usr/local/share/docs/blaat. At least, that was the expected
behaviour. What the port did not do was creating that directory
first, and thus was copying the files over the file
/usr/local/share/docs/blaat each time.

All with all very annoying, and I was surprised that the ports
framework didn't alert me about it while running "make deinstall".

When looking at add-plist-docs, it only adds the files in PORTDOCS
which it can find (although find(1) gives a warning it is /dev/nulled).
At the end of it only adds the DOCSDIR if it is a directory.

Although it is a discussion issue to start with, it is my opinion
that the variables set in the ports Makefile have to be correct.
And if they are not, bsd.port.mk should warn us about them being
wrong (USE_LIBTOOL_VER=14 is a nice example) instead of being Mr
Nice Guy and fix it behind our backs.

Fix: This will make bsd.port.mk / add-plist-docs less tolerant to
Checkout ports/dns/sqldjbdns/Makefile revision 1.1, and wonder why
an install / deinstall you have a file called
/usr/local/share/docs/sqldjbdns leftover.

JFYI:  I removed the comments and added '@' to 'if' and ${ECHO_CMD}
to supress the superfluous output.
