pkgng without ports: addenda

Two things I forgot to mention in my previous post:

  1. In order to use OpenPAM from svn instead of the version that comes with FreeBSD, you need to copy security/pam_mod_misc.h and pam_debug_log.c into the OpenPAM source tree and adjust the Makefiles accordingly, otherwise FreeBSD’s service modules won’t run and you won’t be able to log in. I don’t plan to include this code in OpenPAM; I’d rather overhaul FreeBSD’s modules so they no longer need it.
  2. What I actually wanted to do, but didn’t because I needed a solution there and then, was patch automake itself to add a pkgng target so gmake pkgng creates a package with no additional input required (except possibly a +DESC file).
