#12885 closed defect (fixed)

parse_environment chokes on empty variables

Reported by: afb@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone: MacPorts 1.6
Component: base Version: 1.6.0
Keywords: Cc:


Setting any *.env variable to the empty string () makes port silently lose all following variables...

Example from the qt3-mac port:

build.env       QMAKESPEC='' QTDIR='' DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH="${worksrcpath}/lib"

This results in the following:

DEBUG: Environment:

That is: zero variables, instead of three (whereof two being the empty string).
