Description Mark Linimon freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2006-01-28 03:40:02 UTC
The use of .error in port Makefiles has been discouraged for some time
as it introduces fragility into the 'make index' process.  This patch
removes the last vestiges from the various port Makefiles.

From-To: analyzed->closed

Partially committed. 

The analysis is that it is correct to use .error in the case where a USE_* 
variable is set, because in that case 'make index' _should_ fail.  However, 
any _legal_ user-variable set should _not_ cause it to fail.
