Install for libnet is failing with

Error: Target org.macports.configure returned: error copying "/usr/share/libtool/config.guess": no such file or directory Warning: the following items did not execute (for libnet): org.macports.activate org.macports.configure org.macports.destroot org.macports.install Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.

This system path/file does not exist on OS X 10.4.11

The closest matches that I can are is



Substituting these paths in the Portfile allows the package to be created and installed

/usr/share/libtool/config.guess does exist on my 10.4.11 Intel system. Its modification date is September 12, 2006, which is the same modification date as about 2500 items in /System, so it's a safe bet this was installed by Mac OS X. So the question is why it is not on your system.

I checked with a friend running 10.5.1 Intel, and /usr/share/libtool/config.guess is present there too.

Strange, I do not have it with 10.4.11 on my MacBook Pro either, and the lack of that directory seems to cause trouble for libsdl_sound (see #13736). I reinstalled XCode 2.5, but there's still no /usr/share/libtool directory on my Mac. Could someone perhaps check their boms to find which package installed it?

$ lsbom /Library/Receipts/*.pkg/Contents/ | grep 'usr/share/libtool'

After some digging, I found /usr/share/libtool on my Mac OS X Install Disc 1, within DeveloperTools.pkg. Strangely, the XCode 2.5 DeveloperTools.pkg does not include those files! Maybe I need to reinstall the developer tools from the DVD, and then I'll install XCode 2.5.

The files are installed by Xcode 2.4(.1) and earlier

/usr/share/libtool is missing from DeveloperToolsCLI.pkg of Xcode 2.5, even though it was present in the the DeveloperTools.pkg of Xcode 2.4 - although both packages provide the /usr/bin/glibtool program.

So "upgrading" from Xcode 2.4.1 to Xcode 2.5 will delete the required config.guess and config.sub files.

Since the maintainer hasn't responded to this, I fixed it in r33146.
