Ticket #25810 (closed defect: duplicate)
policykit fails to build when coreutils +with_default_names is installed
|Reported by:||julio.lopez@…||Owned by:||macports-tickets@…|
The configure script for policykit finds the tools in /opt/local/bin (or whatever your default installation directory is) and uses those in the build process. It seems that a and basenam= cause problems in this case. See attached log.
Either adding (a) a note to the port file, or even better (b) a check for whether coreutils+with_default_names is installed and react accordingly, e.g., issuing an error message or setting the path explicitly for the configure script, etc.
Deactivating coreutils and then installing policyKit (after a port clean) solves the problem.
