Ticket #13938 (closed defect: fixed)
netpbm should maybe install symlinks for libpbm libpgm libpnm and libppm
|Reported by:||ryandesign@…||Owned by:||mas@…|
netpbm installs libnetpbm.dylib but it looks like this functionality used to be spread out among four libraries: libpbm libpgm libpnm and libppm. Some old software still references the netpbm libraries by those old library names. See for example this message. When adding the new ppmtomd port I had to patch the Makefile to change "-lpnm -lppm -lpgm -lpbm" to "-lnetpbm". That patch could be avoided if we made symlinks for the old library names when installing netpbm. What do you think? I'll attach a patch and you can think about it.
