Ok so are all of these needed now?

Code:
#Advanced Settings
autoconf=yes
automake=yes
libtool=yes
curl=yes
new_pcre=yes

If so I can't see them in the Option section in the plugin.

I assume its like you said with Curl yes means CB does it
No is OS installed

if not what are they for?

Is new_pcre for version 2? if yes, why not call it pcre2

None of these (with the exception of cURL) are in the latest versions of CB. That's why you don't see them in the options section. new_pcre was for the pcre1, they just had some breaking changes there, but we always install latest versions now.

So we dont need them? ok so if i run
Code:
/usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/build create_options

Will it remove the entries that are defunct?

So it should look like this
Code:
#Advanced Settings
curl=no

I guess what I am saying is how do we now we have all the correct entries on older installs. Is there some way to keep the options.conf clean?

No, it doesn't remove text/comments or leftover lines from the options.conf file. This could be implemented though, as it makes sense.

Regarding re-generating options.conf - you may move your current one, run any build command (or create_options) - it should re-generate the conf then, you may edit it with any settings you'd like to :)

I did this and it did not seem to work. I answered all the questions but it seems to just add to the old one. So maybe I need to backup>delete the old one.

Do I get credit for asking for it and making sense? :)

Shall I add it to feedback?
