BUG: coreutils-6.9 fails to stage into destroot

Reported by: vdham@… Owned by: jmpp@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version:
Keywords: Cc: pipping@…


Currently the build process fails with the rather cryptic message:

--->  Staging coreutils into destroot
Error: Target org.macports.destroot returned: no such file or directory
Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.

Upon further investigation, using the -debug option, I found the following in ports/sysutils/coreutils/Portfile:

post-destroot {
    delete ${destroot}${prefix}/share/info/dir \
    if {[variant_isset with_default_names]} {
        foreach d {bin share/man/man1} {
            cd ${destroot}${prefix}/$d
            foreach a [glob g*] {
                regexp g(.+) $a dummy b
                file link -hard $b g$b

The file ${destroot}${prefix}/share/info/dir does not seem to get created during the build process. I do not know why the delete statement is there, but the obvious fix seems to remove that.

A simple workaround for the time being is to start the build process, wait for it to fail, then issue:

touch /opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_ports_sysutils_coreutils/work/destroot/opt/local/share/info/dir

and try again.
