NAME
mk.conf -- make configuration file
DESCRIPTION
The mk.conf file overrides various parameters used during the build of the system. Listed below are the mk.conf variables that may be set, the values to which each may be set, a brief description of what each variable does, and a reference to relevant manual pages. NetBSD System variables NETBSDSRCDIR The path to the top level of the NetBSD sources. If make(1) is run from within the NetBSD source tree, the default is the top level of that tree (as determined by the presence of build.sh and tools/), otherwise BSDSRCDIR will be used. BSDOBJDIR The real path to the `obj' tree for the NetBSD source tree. Default: /usr/obj BSDSRCDIR The real path to the NetBSD source tree. Default: /usr/src BUILD If defined, `make install' checks that the targets in the source directories are up-to-date and re-makes them if they are out of date, instead of blindly trying to install out of date or non-existent targets. Default: Unset. BUILDID Identifier for the build. The identifier will be appended to object directory names, and can be consulted in the make(1) configuration file in order to set additional build parameters, such as compiler flags. Default: Unset. COPTS Extra options for the C compiler. Should be appended to (e.g., COPTS+=-g), rather than explicitly set. DESTDIR Directory to contain the built NetBSD system. If set, special options are passed to the compilation tools to prevent their default use of the host system's /usr/include, /usr/lib, and so forth. This pathname should not end with a slash (/) character (for installation into the system's root directory, set DESTDIR to an empty string). The directory must reside on a file system which supports long file names and hard links. Default: Empty string if USETOOLS is ``yes''; unset otherwise. Note: build.sh will provide a default of destdir.MACHINE (in the top-level .OBJDIR) unless run in `expert' mode MKBFD Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether libbfd, libiberty, or any of the things that depend upon them (such as the binutils, as(1), gdb(1), ld(1), dbsym(8), or mdsetimage(8)) should be built. Default: ``yes'' MKCATPAGES Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether preformatted plaintext manual pages will be created during a build. Default: ``yes'' MKCRYPTO Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether cryptographic code will be included in a build; provided for the benefit of countries that do not allow strong cryptography. Will not affect use of the standard low- security password encryption system, crypt(3). Default: ``yes'' If ``no'', acts as MKKERBEROS=no. MKCRYPTO_IDEA Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether IDEA support will be built into libcrypto_idea.a. Default: ``no'' MKCRYPTO_MDC2 Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether MDC2 support will be built into libcrypto_mdc2.a. Default: ``no'' MKCRYPTO_RC5 Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether RC5 support will be built into libcrypto_rc5.a. Default: ``no'' MKCVS Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether cvs(1) is built. Default: ``yes'' MKDEBUG Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether separate debugging symbols should be installed into DESTDIR/usr/libdata/debug. Default: ``no'' MKDEBUGLIB Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether debug libraries (lib*_g.a) will be built and installed during a build. Debug libraries are compiled with ``-g -DDEBUG''. Default: ``no'' MKDOC Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether system documentation destined for DESTDIR/usr/share/doc will be installed during a build. Default: ``yes'' MKDYNAMICROOT Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether all programs should be dynamically linked, and to install shared libraries required by /bin and /sbin and the shared linker ld.elf_so(1) into /lib. If `no', link programs in /bin and /sbin statically. MKGCC Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether gcc(1) or any related libraries (libg2c, libgcc, libobjc, libstdc+) are built. Default: ``yes'' MKGDB Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether gdb(1) is built. Default: ``yes'' MKHESIOD Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether the Hesiod infrastructure (libraries and support programs) is built. Default: ``yes'' MKHOSTOBJ Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. If set to ``yes'', then for programs intended to be run on the compile host, the name, release, and architecture of the host operating system will be suffixed to the name of the object directory created by ``make obj''. (This allows multiple host systems to compile NetBSD for a single target.) If set to ``no'', then programs built to be run on the compile host will use the same object directory names as programs built to be run on the target. Default: ``no'' MKHTML Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether the html manual pages are built and installed. Default: ``yes'' MKIEEEFP Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether code for IEEE754/IEC60559 conformance is built. Has no effect on most platforms. Default: ``yes'' MKINFO Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether GNU Info files, used for the documentation for most of the compilation tools, will be created and installed during a build. Default: ``yes'' MKIPFILTER Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether the ipf(4) programs, headers and LKM will be compiled and installed during a build. Default: ``yes'' MKKERBEROS Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether the Kerberos v5 infrastructure (libraries and support programs) is built. Default: ``yes'' MKLINKLIB Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether all of the shared library infrastructure is built. If `no', prevents: installation of the *.a libraries, installation of the *_pic.a libraries on PIC systems, building of *.a libraries on PIC systems, or installation of .so symlinks on ELF systems. Default: ``yes'' If ``no'', acts as MKPICINSTALL=no MKPROFILE=no. MKLINT Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether lint(1) will be run against portions of the NetBSD source code during the build, and whether lint libraries will be installed into DESTDIR/usr/libdata/lint. Default: ``yes'' MKMAN Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether manual pages will be installed during a build. Default: ``yes'' If ``no'', acts as MKCATPAGES=no MKHTML=no. MKMANZ Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether manual pages should be compressed with gzip(1) at installation time. Default: ``no'' MKNLS Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether Native Language System (NLS) locale zone files will be compiled and installed during a build. Default: ``yes'' MKOBJ Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether object directories will be created when running ``make obj''. If set to ``no'', then all built files will be located inside the regular source tree. Default: ``yes'' If ``no'', acts as MKOBJDIRS=no. MKOBJDIRS Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether object directories will be created automatically (via a ``make obj'' pass) at the start of a build. Default: ``no'' MKPAM Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether the pam(8) framework (libraries and support files) is built. The pre-PAM code is not supported and may be removed in the future. Default: ``yes'' MKPF Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether the pf(4) programs, headers and LKM will be compiled and installed during a build. Default: ``yes'' MKPIC Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether shared objects and libraries will be created and installed during a build. If set to ``no'', the entire built system will be statically linked. Default: Platform dependent. As of this writing, all platforms except m68000 and sh3 default to ``yes''. If ``no'', acts as MKPICLIB=no. MKPICINSTALL Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether the ar(1) format libraries (lib*_pic.a), used to generate shared libraries, are installed during a build. Default: ``yes'' MKPICLIB Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether the ar(1) format libraries (lib*_pic.a), used to generate shared libraries. Default: ``yes'' MKPOSTFIX Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether Postfix is built. Default: ``yes'' MKPROFILE Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether profiled libraries (lib*_p.a) will be built and installed during a build. Default: ``yes''; however, some platforms turn off MKPROFILE by default at times due to toolchain problems with profiled code. MKSHARE Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether files destined to reside in DESTDIR/usr/share will be built and installed during a build. Default: ``yes'' If ``no'', acts as MKCATPAGES=no MKDOC=no MKINFO=no MKHTML=no MKMAN=no MKNLS=no. MKSKEY Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether the S/key infrastructure (libraries and support programs) is built. Default: ``yes'' MKSOFTFLOAT Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether the compiler generates output containing library calls for floating point and possibly soft-float library support. Default: ``no'' MKUNPRIVED Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether an unprivileged install will occur. The user, group, permissions, and file flags, will not be set on the installed item; instead the information will be appended to a file called METALOG in DESTDIR. The contents of METALOG is used during the generation of the distribution tar files to ensure that the appropriate file ownership is stored. Default: ``no'' MKUPDATE Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether all install operations intended to write to DESTDIR will compare file timestamps before installing, and skip the install phase if the destination files are up-to-date. This also has implications on full builds (see next subsection). Default: ``no'' MKYP Can be set to ``yes'' or ``no''. Indicates whether the YP (NIS) infrastructure (libraries and support programs) is built. Default: ``yes'' OBJMACHINE If defined, creates objdirs of the form obj.MACHINE, where MACHINE is the current architecture (as per `uname -m'). RELEASEDIR If set, specifies the directory to which a release(7) layout will be written at the end of a ``make release''. Default: Unset. Note: build.sh will provide a default of releasedir (in the top-level .OBJDIR) unless run in `expert' mode TOOLDIR Directory to hold the host tools, once built. This directory should be unique to a given host system and NetBSD source tree. (However, multiple targets may share the same TOOLDIR; the target-dependent files have unique names.) If unset, a default based on the uname(1) information of the host platform will be created in the .OBJDIR of src. Default: Unset. USETOOLS Indicates whether the tools specified by TOOLDIR should be used as part of a build in progress. Must be set to ``yes'' if cross-compiling. yes Use the tools from TOOLDIR. no Do not use the tools from TOOLDIR, but refuse to build native compilation tool components that are version-specific for that tool. never Do not use the tools from TOOLDIR, even when building native tool components. This is similar to the traditional NetBSD build method, but does not verify that the compilation tools in use are up-to-date enough in order to build the tree successfully. This may cause build or runtime problems when building the whole NetBSD source tree. Default: ``yes'' if building all or part of a whole NetBSD source tree (detected automatically); ``no'' otherwise (to preserve traditional semantics of the <bsd.*.mk> make(1) include files). pkgsrc system variables Please see packages(7) for more variables used internally by the package system and ${PKGSRCDIR}/mk/defaults/mk.conf for package-specific examples.
