odhcp6c package building issue (maybe all packages that use cmake)

Reported by: Gaetano Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: odhcp6c Cc:


The package is not correctly compiled after changing the configuration options.

For example, if I change the value of EXT_PREFIX_CLASS option, and build the package again, the value of this option is not updated in the build_dir and the package is compiled with the old value.

Maybe I'm wrong, but think this is a problem present in all packages that use cmake.
Normally, the configuration options are passed directly to make program as argument (e.g. -DCONFIG_FOO_ENABLED). On the contrary, when packages relies on cmake, the configuration options are passed during the configure phase so once the package has been configured for the first time the configuration options cannot be updated.

Is there a way to force a package to be reconfigured every time you build it?

if you unpack the package using quilt, it will call the configure step every time.
