Description Dennis Schridde 2020-12-28 15:15:44 UTC
dev-haskell/yaml supports the "no-exe" useflag:

❯ q use -eD no-exe
dev-haskell/yaml[no-exe] don't install the yaml2json executable
dev-haskell/yaml[no-exe] don't install the yaml2json or json2yaml executables

The more popular useflag among dev-haskell packages appears to be "executable":

❯ q use -eD executable
dev-haskell/bytedump[executable] build executable file
dev-haskell/cpu[executable] build 'cpuid' tool
dev-haskell/highlighting-kate[executable] Build the Highlight executable.
dev-haskell/language-dot[executable] Build the `ppdot' executable
dev-haskell/skylighting[executable] Build the skylighting executable.
dev-haskell/skylighting-core[executable] Build the skylighting executable.
dev-haskell/texmath[executable] Compile test executable.
dev-haskell/zip-archive[executable] Build the Zip executable.
dev-php/agavi[executable] Install the "agavi" executable used to manage projects. This requires dev-php/phing, and may be omitted if you are (for example) deploying an existing site to a production server.
dev-haskell/bench-show[executable] Build executable as well as library
dev-haskell/bytedump[executable] build executable file
dev-haskell/citeproc[executable] Build citeproc executable
dev-haskell/cpu[executable] build 'cpuid' tool
dev-haskell/highlighter[executable] Install a "highlighter" executable
dev-haskell/highlighting-kate[executable] Build the Highlight executable.
dev-haskell/language-dot[executable] Build the `ppdot' executable
dev-haskell/skylighting[executable] Whether to build the skylighting program
dev-haskell/skylighting-core[executable] Build skylighting-extract tool
dev-haskell/texmath[executable] Compile test executable.
dev-haskell/zip-archive[executable] Build the Zip executable.

It would be nice if the useflags could be unified.

That makes sense. We might need to add direct support for flag mapping into hackport that allows not just renames (current `-ffoo:bar`) but also flag inversions.
