#11006 closed defect (fixed)

Port ruby has unnecessary dependencies

Reported by: bmakuch@… Owned by: pguyot (Paul Guyot)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.3.2
Keywords: Cc:


The ruby Portfile lists TCL and TK as required ports. Neither appear to be required for the underlying ruby interpreter to be compiled and installed and pulling in TK also pulls in XFree86.

  • This bug should have been assigned to the ruby port maintainer, aka pguyot.
  • The following post in the MacPortsUser mailing list shows a possible (although incomplete) solution for this problem.

The attached patch file changes the ruby Portfile so it no longer lists Tcl and Tk as default dependencies and move these in a 'tk' variant. The --without-tk configure arg ensures that the tk extension is not compiled, which is a much easier solution than the one described in the aforementioned mailing list post :)

I think we should also increment the revision number on this port file after this commit. Otherwise, we'll have people with the same ruby Port version with and without tcl/tk bindings depending upon when they build the package.
