./pkgtools/pkg_comp, Build packages inside a chroot jail

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.37, Package name: pkg_comp-1.37, Maintainer: jmmv

pkg_comp is a small utility designed to build packages inside a
clean chroot tree.

Some ideas about what to use it for (taken from manpage):
* Build packages for other system versions. For example, build
packages for NetBSD 1.5 while you are running NetBSD current.
* Build packages using different options than your current system
like changing the threading library, COPTS, placement of
configuration files, etc.
* Debug the build process of a package, checking if buildlinks
work properly.
* Avoid autoconf's side effects by keeping a separate chroot for
each project, like one for GNOME2 and another one for KDE3.
* Schedule builds of package sets for several different machines.

Update to pkg_comp 1.37:

- Add the GENERATE_PKG_SUMMARY option to tell pkg_comp to generate a
  pkg_summary.gz file in the packages directory.  Useful to later be
  able to run a packaging tool like pkgin against new binary packages.

Log message:
Update to 1.36:

- Allow specifying packages by their basename, without a category.  This
  affects the arguments to the 'build' command as well as the list of
  packages provided to AUTO_PACKAGES and BUILD_PACKAGES.
