Ticket #20002 (closed defect: wontfix)
bugs in vtk-devel Portfile on Tiger
|Reported by:||jjstickel@…||Owned by:||dweber@…|
For the variant 'data', a "tar --strip-components ..." is used. The tar with Tiger predates the --strip-components option, and hence this fails. One option is to force the use of gnutar as provided by macports.
For the variant 'doc', a "ln -Fhs ..." is used. The ln with Tiger does not have the 'F' option, and hence this fails. Although the 'gln' in coreutils provides the 'F' option, it does not provide the 'h' option.
The "file copy ..." commands fail if a file already exists in the destination (as happens during debugging of a failed install). Is there an appropriate option that can be used to allow an overwrite?
Has "use_parallel_build yes" been tested with this Portfile? It would help speed up the compile time for this large package.
