Ticket #15925 (closed enhancement: fixed)
refactor pgplot Portfile to remove PPC/i386 distinction and make gcc42 the default compiler
|Reported by:||davidh@…||Owned by:||macports-tickets@…|
pgplot is written in Fortran, thus it needs a compiler built for it. The current Portfile has a PPC variant with the compiler set to gcc34/g77, and a i386 variant with the compiler set to gcc42/gfortran.
g77 is a little outdated, and requires a gcc 3.x compiler to build. I have not been able to get g77 to build on 10.5.x.
What I have done is to refactor the existing Portfile to remove the PPC/i386 dependencies so that pgplot compiles with gcc42/gfortran as a default variant, and gcc34/g77 is selectable as a variant for compatibility with existing installations.
I have tested this Portfile on a PPC/10.4.11 system and on a i386 10.4.11 system. The existing patch files are unchanged.
What is the process to put this refactored Portfile in the Macports repository?
- Status changed from new to closed
- Resolution set to fixed
