Subject: [gentoo-dev] [PATCH] out-of-source.eclass: A new eclass to help with out-of-source builds
Date: Sat, 12 Aug 2017 22:24:04
Message-Id: 20170812222351.7592-1-mgorny@gentoo.org
The out-of-source.eclass is a simple multilib-minimal-style wrapper
to perform out of source builds of autotools (and other) packages. It is
mostly derived from the function served in the past by autotools-utils
since a number of developers found it useful. However, in order to avoid
the mistakes of autotools-utils, it is meant to be focused on a single
feature and have a better API.

This eclass has two use cases:

1. Ensuring that packages are tested with out-of-source builds.

2. Improving consistency between multilib and non-multilib packages.

// NB: I've even considered naming the phases multilib_*() to make
// switching to multilib even easier.

In the most basic form, it just redefines the phases from src_configure()
to src_install() with out-of-source wrappers. However, each phase can
be overriden using my_src_*() sub-phase that is run inside build dir
(alike multilib_src_*() in multilib-minimal). There is also
my_src_install_all() for the trailing source-dir actions.

// I'm wondering whether ECONF_SOURCE should be declared unconditionally
// as it is now in the patch, or if it should only be included
// in the default and required to be specified in my_src_configure()
// when redefined. FWICS, multilib-minimal currently requires it
// explicitly specified all the time.

+# @BLURB: convenient wrapper to build autotools packages out-of-source
+# @DESCRIPTION:
+# This eclass provides a minimalistic wrapper interface to easily
+# build autotools (and alike) packages out-of-source. It is meant
+# to resemble the interface used by multilib-minimal without actually
+# requiring the package to be multilib.
+#
+# For the simplest ebuilds, it is enough to inherit the eclass
+# and the new phase functions will automatically build the package
+# out-of-source. If you need to redefine one of the default phases
+# between src_configure() and src_install(), you need to define
+# the sub-phases: my_src_configure(), my_src_compile(), my_src_test()
+# and my_src_install() instead that will be run inside the build
+# directory. Additionally, my_src_install_all() is provided to perform
+# doc-install and other common tasks done in source directory.
+#
+# Example use:
+# @CODE
+# inherit out-of-source
+#
+# my_src_configure() {
+#     econf \
+#         --disable-static
+# }
+# @CODE
+

+	6);;
