Hi,

Referring to Dirk's request earlier in this chain:

So it would be nice to have an option in one of the CONFIG files to
declare that a specific architecture should build EPICS 7 without PVA
support.



If I understand the intention right, he would like to be able to build the
EPICS 7 base for many architectures but so that not all of them are
required to support PVA.

I think that is a legitimate request: this way he can keep up with the
other updates in the base and does not have to abandon (at least
immediately) those architectures that are not able to support PVA.

I think this could make the adoption of EPICS 7 easier not only for Dirk
but for other sites, too. The change does not look impossible to me.

Timo
