BUG: python24 creates a wrong symlink

Reported by: raimue (Rainer Müller) Owned by: mww@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.4.40
Keywords: Cc: mww@…, raimue (Rainer Müller), roederja


The python24 port does not create a symlink in {$prefix}/include/python24 to the Framework directory. I have heard that without this symlink some other ports depending on python (e.g. boost +python) fail to find the python headers.

The attached patch fixes this issue.

Hm I'm not sure about this. Of course you are right, the existing code for the link is wrong, however some ports like py-numeric install files in ${prefi}include/python2.4 , so if we change the portfile, I'm not sure what implications that would have.

It will put all of the headers file in the framework hierarchy, which, I think, is a good thing.

Should be fixed by the revised python24 port merged to trunk in r37814.
