Jason, are you asking relative to the new port you just created, for RawTherapee?

> As I was working on a port recently, a question came to mind which I’m curious about. When using `require_active_variants` in a Portfile, are the builders smart enough to then install dependencies using the required variants? Because when I install the port locally, I have to manually go and install the dependencies myself with the required variants.
