DragonFly  4.7-DEVELOPMENT DragonFly v4.7.0.777.g55bcc-DEVELOPMENT #2: Sat Nov  5 19:57:01 PDT 2016     xxxxxx@:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/X86_64_GENERIC  x86_64

For current pkgsrc x11/xfce4-tumbler, some effort has been made to give in an option to not build with say multimedia/ffmpegthumbnailer.  Unfortunately the PLIST_VARS defined in are not actually used in PLIST, so that

bmake install package

fails on for example DragonFly 4.7-DEVELOPMENT with the line

PKG_OPTIONS.tumbler= -ffmpegthumbnailer

added to /usr/pkg/etc/mk.conf


If only dealing with ffmpegthumbnailer, the following patch allows

bmake install package clean

to work on DragonFly 4.7-DEVELOPMENT; however, the other PLIST_VARS from might need to be used in PLIST as well.
