Brad Morgan commented on MNT-1586:

This is a ultimately a bug in our documentation.

If the build_dns and/or build_dhcp modules aren't installed and enabled, then there is no building at all. No errors, no warnings, just nothing happens.

This isn't ideal, and at the very least our documentation needs to be updated to reflect the fact that you must have some kind of build module installed and enabled in order for building magic to occur. (and I would like to see the build script generate some kind of error if nothing happened)

I'm going to leave this issue open because it does needs adressing on some level.

>      Project: Maintain
>         Type: Bug
>     Versions: 3.0.0-RC2
>  Environment: Gentoo

> In the INSTALL doc:
> 7. Cron Setup
>     1) This will depend on your system, setup cron to run
>            $prefix/bin/build/all -p
>        however often you would like it to build the files. Make sure you edit 
>            $prefix/maintain.cfg
>        as well as the individual module config files to reflect the build 
>        setup.
> Running `all -p` by hand does nothing.  stracing it, it doesn't even touch the build modules.  Come to find out, as noted in the comments of all:
>   * all - PHP shell script for updating all configuration files
>   * This document is part of the maintain backend and is usually invoked
>   * by bin/maintain-update. It will build the dns/dhcp config files,
>   * test and push them respectively
> Fix:  The INSTALL doc should be changed to reflect the appropriate way of updating files (maintain-update instead of build/all).  Or, if build/all is really the way to go, it's not working right whereas maintain-update seems to.
