However, (I've looked through the man pages, and I'm not clear on this,
forgive me if it's a stupid question)
Suppose he has WITH_RUBY defined in /etc/make.conf. Now, the subversion
Makefile has something like .if defined WITHOUT_RUBY blah blah.
Can he do make -DWITHOUT_RUBY install for that one port
(/devel/subversion) and keep it for all other ports?
What am I missing?
Thanks for you patience and help with this.
