Ticket #20319 (closed defect: invalid)
portindex fails if configure.args-append has space after \
|Reported by:||snc@…||Owned by:||macports-tickets@…|
If a portfile has configure.args-append take more than one line, portindex will fail if a space is found after the \ character.
configure.args-append --disable-macosx-defaults \ --enable-release --enable-macosx --enable-macosx-audio --enable-a52 --enable-cddax \ …
fails with Failed to parse file multimedia/vlc/Portfile: invalid command name "--enable-release"
Removing the space after the escape character will then let it proceed, however this error does not allow indexing of the port – you can therefore not run port lint which would catch whitespace at the end of the line.
