Poking around in various ports that are marked 'broken' I found
Trying to 'make' this port fails when it gives the error message
make: don't know how to make setquota.cat1. Stop.
I tracked down the 'problem' to bsd.prog.mk where the lines
.endif # !defined(MAN)
seem to make <prog>.1 a required file for all programs. Since the
setquota port only has setquote.8 and getquota.8, the make fails.
Putting "MAN=" into the program makefile works, but now not even
the .8 manpages are installed. The presence of "MAN8= ..." apparently
not being enough.
While I don't particularly care about setquota, I am curious about
what the 'correct' procedure is for creating a program makefile
that works when only non-cat1 man pages are present. I looked at the
mail archives but couldn't spot a discussion of this.
