USE flags

  • botan - Make it possible to use the dev-libs/botan library for crypto-related stuff (like DNSSec) which can be significantly faster than PolarSSL.
  • debug - Enable extra debug codepaths, like asserts and extra output. If you want to get meaningful backtraces see https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Project:Quality_Assurance/Backtraces
  • doc - Add extra documentation (API, Javadoc, etc). It is recommended to enable per package instead of globally
  • geoip - Add geoip support for country and city lookup based on IPs
  • ldap - Add LDAP support (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol)
  • libressl - Use dev-libs/libressl instead of dev-libs/openssl when applicable (see also the ssl useflag)
  • lua - Enable Lua scripting support
  • lua-records - Enable LUA records.
  • luajit - Use dev-lang/luajit instead of dev-lang/lua (ineffective with USE=-lua)
  • mydns - Making it possible to use a MyDNS MySQL database with PowerDNS (not recommended for new deployments).
  • mysql - Add mySQL Database support
  • odbc - Add ODBC Support (Open DataBase Connectivity)
  • opendbx - Use a database supported by dev-db/opendbx as backend.
  • postgres - Add support for the postgresql database
  • protobuf - Enable support for dev-libs/protobuf.
  • remote - Use a generic socket or pipe as a backend (via JSON RPC requests).
  • sodium - Use dev-libs/libsodium for cryptography
  • sqlite - Add support for sqlite - embedded sql database
  • sqlite3 - Add support for sqlite3 - embedded sql database
  • static - !!do not set this during bootstrap!! Causes binaries to be statically linked instead of dynamically
  • systemd - Enable use of systemd-specific libraries and features like socket activation or session tracking
  • test - Enable dependencies and/or preparations necessary to run tests (usually controlled by FEATURES=test but can be toggled independently)
  • tinydns - Use a TinyDNS CDB database as backend.
  • tools - Build optional tools (dnsscan, dnsscope, etc..).
