Bug#892935: libdebian-installer: Please add support for "nodoc" build options and profile
We need changes in this package to help to bootstrap the riscv64 architecture,
in particular it will help to skip using doxygen (in a clean way) for the time
It will be available at some point in the future, but it's complicate to have it
in the initial stages, due to the build-depends needed (particularly
yui-compressor and ruby-compass at this moment). This is probably the case for
any other architecture being bootstrapped now or in the near future.
I am attaching a patch that makes possible to compile the package by using
profiles (or options) "nodoc", avoiding the dependency in d/control (with
profile) and avoiding those files. The profile helps to avoid the
build-dependency entirel, not needing to force to build with missing
Besides that, "nodoc" is a standard build option that would be nice to have in
Please consider applying the patch (that I will upload in minutes, to have a bug
number) or providing some alternative solution to the same effect.
Thanks and cheers.
