#12110 closed defect (fixed)

BUG - Boost 1.34.0

Reported by: cliff.spradlin@… Owned by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)
Priority: High Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.4.40
Keywords: Cc: cliff.spradlin@…,sanchom (Sancho McCann),ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)


The new boost update port doesn't create a "boost" directory symlink in /opt/local/include from the version specific directory /opt/local/include/boost-1_34.

The reason for this is so that code can do: "#include <boost/whatever.h>" and have it always work. If code needs a specific version, the proper practice is to do: "#include <boost-1_34/whatever.h>"

Looking at the changeset..

Looks like the relevent portion that was removed was in post-destroot:

set incdirver [join [lrange [split ${version} {.}] 0 2] {_}] system "ln -fs boost-${incdirver}/boost ${destroot}${prefix}/include/boost"
