NAME

src.conf – source build options

CONTENTS

DESCRIPTION

The src.conf file contains settings that will apply to every build involving the FreeBSD source tree; see build(7).

The src.conf file uses the standard makefile syntax. However, src.conf should not specify any dependencies to make(1). Instead, src.conf is to set make(1) variables that control the aspects of how the system builds.

The default location of src.conf is /etc/src.conf, though an alternative location can be specified in the make(1) variable SRCCONF. Overriding the location of src.conf may be necessary if the system-wide settings are not suitable for a particular build. For instance, setting SRCCONF to /dev/null effectively resets all build controls to their defaults.

The only purpose of src.conf is to control the compilation of the FreeBSD source code, which is usually located in /usr/src. As a rule, the system administrator creates src.conf when the values of certain control variables need to be changed from their defaults.

In addition, control variables can be specified for a particular build via the -D option of make(1) or in its environment; see environ(7).

The environment of make(1) for the build can be controlled via the SRC_ENV_CONF variable, which defaults to /etc/src-env.conf. Some examples that may only be set in this file are WITH_DIRDEPS_BUILD, and WITH_META_MODE as they are environment-only variables. Note that MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX may be set here only when using WITH_DIRDEPS_BUILD.

The values of variables are ignored regardless of their setting; even if they would be set to "FALSE" or "NO". The presence of an option causes it to be honored by make(1).

This list provides a name and short description for variables that can be used for source builds.

WITHOUT_BHYVE
  Set to not build or install bhyve(8), associated utilities, and examples.

This option only affects amd64/amd64.

WITHOUT_BINUTILS
  Set to not build or install binutils (as, ld, objcopy, and objdump ) as part of the normal system build. The resulting system cannot build programs from source.

This is a default setting on arm64/aarch64.

WITH_BINUTILS
  Set to build and install binutils (as, ld, objcopy, and objdump) as part of the normal system build.

This is a default setting on amd64/amd64, arm/arm, arm/armeb, arm/armv6, i386/i386, mips/mipsel, mips/mips, mips/mips64el, mips/mips64, mips/mipsn32, pc98/i386, powerpc/powerpc, powerpc/powerpc64 and sparc64/sparc64.

WITHOUT_BINUTILS_BOOTSTRAP
  Set to not build binutils (as, ld, objcopy and objdump) as part of the bootstrap process. The option does not work for build targets unless some alternative toolchain is provided.

This is a default setting on arm64/aarch64.

WITH_BINUTILS_BOOTSTRAP
  Set build binutils (as, ld, objcopy and objdump) as part of the bootstrap process.

WITHOUT_CASPER
WITHOUT_CASPER Set to not build Casper program and related libraries.
WITH_CCACHE_BUILD Set to use ccache(1) for the build. No configuration is required except to install the devel/ccache package. When using with distcc(1), set CCACHE_PREFIX=/usr/local/bin/distcc. The default cache directory of $HOME/.ccache will be used, which can be overridden by setting CCACHE_DIR. The CCACHE_COMPILERCHECK option defaults to content when using the in-tree bootstrap compiler, and mtime when using an external compiler. The CCACHE_CPP2 option is used for Clang but not GCC.

Sharing a cache between multiple work directories requires using a layout similar to /some/prefix/src /some/prefix/obj and an environment such as:

CCACHE_BASEDIR='${SRCTOP:H}' MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX='${SRCTOP:H}/obj'

See ccache(1) for more configuration options.

WITHOUT_CROSS_COMPILER Set to not build any cross compiler in the cross-tools stage of buildworld. When compiling a different version of FreeBSD than what is installed on the system, provide an alternate compiler with XCC to ensure success. When compiling with an identical version of FreeBSD to the host, this option may be safely used. This option may also be safe when the host version of FreeBSD is close to the sources being built, but all bets are off if there have been any changes to the toolchain between the versions. When set, it enforces these options:

WITHOUT_DIALOG Set to not build dialog(1), dialog(3), dpv(1), and dpv(3). When set, it enforces these options:

WITHOUT_BSDINSTALL
WITHOUT_DICT Set to not build the Webster dictionary files.
WITH_DIRDEPS_BUILD This is an experimental build system. For details see http://www.crufty.net/sjg/docs/freebsd-meta-mode.htm. Build commands can be seen from the top-level with:

    make show-valid-targets

The build is driven by dirdeps.mk using DIRDEPS stored in Makefile.depend files found in each directory.

The build can be started from anywhere, and behaves the same. The initial instance of make(1) recursively reads DIRDEPS from Makefile.depend, computing a graph of tree dependencies from the current origin. Setting NO_DIRDEPS skips checking dirdep dependencies and will only build in the current and child directories. NO_DIRDEPS_BELOW skips building any dirdeps and only build the current directory.

This also utilizes the WITH_META_MODE logic for incremental builds.

The build hides commands executed unless NO_SILENT is defined.

Note that there is currently no mass install feature for this.

When set, it enforces these options:

WITH_INSTALL_AS_USER

When set, these options are also in effect:

WITHOUT_SYSTEM_COMPILER (unless WITH_SYSTEM_COMPILER is set explicitly)
WITH_AUTO_OBJ (unless WITHOUT_AUTO_OBJ is set explicitly)
WITH_META_MODE (unless WITHOUT_META_MODE is set explicitly)
WITH_STAGING (unless WITHOUT_STAGING is set explicitly)
WITH_STAGING_MAN (unless WITHOUT_STAGING_MAN is set explicitly)

WITH_META_MODE Create make(1) meta files when building, which can provide a reliable incremental build when using filemon(4). The meta file is created in OBJDIR as target.meta. These meta files track the command that was executed, its output, and the current directory. The filemon(4) module is required unless NO_FILEMON is defined. When the module is loaded, any files used by the commands executed are tracked as dependencies for the target in its meta file. The target is considered out-of-date and rebuilt if any of these conditions are true compared to the last build:
  • The command to execute changes.
  • The current working directory changes.
  • The target's meta file is missing.
  • The target's meta file is missing filemon data when filemon is loaded and a previous run did not have it loaded.
  • [requires filemon(4)] Files read, executed or linked to are newer than the target.
  • [requires filemon(4)] Files read, written, executed or linked are missing.
The meta files can also be useful for debugging.

The build hides commands that are executed unless NO_SILENT is defined. Errors cause make(1) to show some of its environment for further debugging.

The build operates as it normally would otherwise. This option originally invoked a different build system but that was renamed to WITH_DIRDEPS_BUILD.

Currently this also enforces WITHOUT_SYSTEM_COMPILER. When set, these options are also in effect:

WITHOUT_SYSTEM_COMPILER (unless WITH_SYSTEM_COMPILER is set explicitly)

This must be set in the environment, make command line, or /etc/src-env.conf, not /etc/src.conf.
