Ticket #21953 (closed defect: fixed)

Opened 7 years ago

Last modified 6 years ago

muniversal portgroup should never attempt to merge pkg-config .pc files or -config scripts

Reported by: ryandesign@… Owned by: mcalhoun@…
Priority: High Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.8.1
Keywords: Cc:


The muniversal portgroup should never attempt to merge certain kinds of files, including pkg-config .pc files (see #19953, #20727, #21583, #21605, #21648) and -config scripts (see #21398, #21461, #21653, #21949). This issue is particularly problematic because the affected port installs as if nothing is wrong. It's not until later, when you try to install a port that depends on this one, that you encounter a problem, and it takes some time then to understand the problem.

I believe .la files should probably also never be merged with C preprocessor directives.
