Ticket #25875 (closed defect: fixed)
texcount requires both texlive-bin and texlive-bin-extra
|Reported by:||jjstickel@…||Owned by:||macports-tickets@…|
I needed to use the command-line-tool "texcount" recently and discovered it as a symlink in the port texlive-bin. However it was a broken symlink! It turns out, the target of the symlink is in texlive-bin-extra, which I now have installed:
$ ls -l /opt/local/bin/texcount lrwxr-xr-x 1 root admin 64 Jul 29 13:16 /opt/local/bin/texcount -> /opt/local/share/texmf-texlive-dist/scripts/texcount/texcount.pl $ ls -l /opt/local/share/texmf-texlive-dist/scripts/texcount/texcount.pl -rwxr-xr-x 2 root admin 43616 May 8 2009 /opt/local/share/texmf-texlive-dist/scripts/texcount/texcount.pl $ port provides /opt/local/bin/texcount /opt/local/bin/texcount is provided by: texlive-bin $ port provides /opt/local/share/texmf-texlive-dist/scripts/texcount/texcount.pl /opt/local/share/texmf-texlive-dist/scripts/texcount/texcount.pl is provided by: texlive-bin-extra
It is not clear to me how these ports are assembled, but it seems that the symlink should belong in texlive-bin-extra, where its target exists, and not in texlive-bin. I wonder if there are other instances like this in the texlive-bin port.
