#6757 closed defect (fixed)

unnecessary compile option on dnsmasq

To avoid confuse by some user, i think the compile option


should be removed from compile options of dnsmasq. That option used to enable reading ISC-DHCP lease files, but it was completly removed on dnsmasq 2.46 (actual version is 2.52). There's no problem using this compile option. It's deprecated and, in fact, does absolutely nothing. The idea is just to avoid some user searching for that on Google and think that dnsmasq can still read ISC-DHCP lease files. According to dnsmasq Changelog:

version 2.46

            Remove ISC-leasefile reading code. This has been
            deprecated for a long time, and last time I removed it, it
            ended up going back by request of one user. This time,   
            it's gone for good; otherwise it would need to be
            re-worked to support multiple domains (see below).

patching it would be as simply as:

[solutti@f8 dnsmasq]$ diff -Naur Makefile.old Makefile
