I need help with make.conf syntax
My current make.conf file is:
CPUTYPE?= k8 MAKE_SHELL?= sh X11BASE= /usr/local # added by use.perl 2008-05-26 13:22:20 PERL_VER=5.8.8 PERL_VERSION=5.8.8
should work, but if I install some other port (i.e. mplayer-plugin) that depends on mplayer it could install mplayer-skins even though I do not want it installed. I will be installing mplayer-plugin and there is a line in its Makefile that says.
USE_GECKO= firefox mozilla seamonkey
If I put USE_GECKO=firefox in my make.conf file will that provide me with any benefits? The reason I ask is a couple of weeks ago I installed Fluxbox on my machine (FreeBSD 7.0 i386) and I found a link to some documention on setting up and configuring Fluxbox on a fresh install and I recall the author putting this line in the make.conf file.
I am not able to look at my old make.conf file because after I followed a link to BSDGuides to harden my system I did too much too soon and locked myself out of my computer so now I am in the process of rebuilding it. I lost everything.
