As discussed on our call, we need to update makefiles in our premium repo, to have two types of tarballs:

  • tier 1 (covers selected hooks, currently legal-log, flex-id, host-cmds)
  • tier 2 (covers everything, we have that now)

Tier 1 is strict subset of tier 2. User is never expected to build both of them. Depending on what package the user has, he should build one or the other.

I was unable to devise a means to alter the list of packages included through adding new targets. We rely on recursive builds which driven by lists of subdirectories in SUBDIRS and DISTSUBDIRS variables. The contents of those variables apparently must be determined during the configure process, rather than during the make process.

So I have opted for adding configure flags to premium/configure instead:


Added support for two new flags:

--with-tier1 - defaults to yes, adds flex_id, host_cmds, legal_logs
--with-tier2 - defaults to no adds subnet_cmds

These flags control the content of INCLUDED_PACKAGES which
is used in src/hooks/dhcp/ to define SUBDIRS.

Altered config report to display packages



This allows you to specify --with(out)-tier1=yes|no and --with(out)-tier2=yes|no. These
work when running configure directly in premium directory or through the Kea main repo.
Kea's main repo configure simply passes the values thru to the premium configure. This is
handy as running "make dist" in Kea main repo currently includes premimum if it's there.


1x. [build]      tmark
    Added configure flags --with-tier1 and --with-tier2 to allow controlling
    which hook libraries are included in the build and distribution.
    (Trac #5359, git TBD)

PS If there's a better way to do this, I'm all ears.

Ticket is ready for review.

Seems good. Three comments:

  • I did a few cosmetic changes, please pull and review them
  • if the argument is yes or no then enable-tierX is more suitable than with-tierX
  • this change is compatible with my idea to move premium config stuff into a m4macros directory directly used by the Kea configure (I still have to find some free time to try this).

So pull, review, decide whether to move to enable and merge. It should be fine to have a working Jenkins with premium support to check the 4 cases... If there is one you prefer I can launch a 'make distcheck' on it on my dev box.
