Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.9nb2, Package name: efax-0.9nb2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

efax is a small ANSI C/POSIX program that sends and receives faxes
using any fax modem (Class 1, 2 or 2.0).

efax is smaller and easier to install than HylaFAX or mgetty+sendfax.
As one user put it ``EFAX is a nice simple program for single user

The ``fax'' command, a shell script, lets you send, receive, view and
print faxes. In larger systems, faxes can be sent by printing to a
``fax'' printer and received faxes can be e-mailed as MIME attachments
to an administrator for distribution. efax can also pass incoming
data calls to a getty program.

The efax package includes ``efix,'' a program to convert between
various image file formats. To fax Postscript files you will need
Ghostscript. To view faxes you can use any program that displays PGM
files. efix can convert received files to Postscript or HP Laserjet
formats for printing.

efax is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License.

Log message:
Modify the pkginstall framework so that it manages all aspects of
INSTALL/DEINSTALL script creation within pkgsrc.

If an INSTALL or DEINSTALL script is found in the package directory,
it is automatically used as a template for the pkginstall-generated
scripts.  If instead, they should be used simply as the full scripts,
then the package Makefile should set INSTALL_SRC or DEINSTALL_SRC
explicitly, e.g.:


As part of the restructuring of the pkginstall framework internals,
we now *always* generate temporary INSTALL or DEINSTALL scripts.  By
comparing these temporary scripts with minimal INSTALL/DEINSTALL
scripts formed from only the base templates, we determine whether or
not the INSTALL/DEINSTALL scripts are actually needed by the package
(see the generate-install-scripts target in bsd.pkginstall.mk).

In addition, more variables in the framework have been made private.
The *_EXTRA_TMPL variables have been renamed to *_TEMPLATE, which are
more sensible names given the very few exported variables in this
framework.  The only public variables relating to the templates are:


The packages in pkgsrc have been modified to reflect the changes in
the pkginstall framework.
