  1. What is the effect of adding that option?
  2. You might get faster handling of this if you submit a Pull Request on GitHub.

1- It embeds definitions (normally located at /opt/local/share/eccodes/definition) in a shared library (, hence if MEMFS option is ON, ecCodes read definitions from memory (if loaded before). It eliminates the need to read likely lots of files from disk.

2- I can only open an issue on GitHub. I didn't make any change (I even don't know how to) on port setup file.

The default value of ENABLE_MEMFS is currently OFF so I made it a variant.
