#13339 closed defect (fixed)

erlang port is pretty broken - installs numerous broken symlinks

Reported by: jkh@… Owned by: bfulgham@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.6.0
Keywords: Cc:


Steps to reproduce:

  1. Install latest-and-greatest MacPorts from Subversion (e.g. ToT, not a released version)
  2. port install erlang
  3. port contents erlang
  4. Diff output of step #4 with what is actually found in /opt/local/ - see some significant discrepancies, among them:

/opt/local/bin/dialyzer -> /opt/local/var/macports/build/_Users_jkh_Src_macports_dports_lang_erlang/work/destroot/opt/local/lib/erlang/bin/dialyzer [ broken link once port workdir is cleaned ]

/opt/local/bin/ear -> ../lib/erlang/bin/ear

[ Does not exist in lib/erlang/bin ]

There are more of these than I care to cut-and-paste in; suffice it to say that this port is pretty broken. :-(

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Updated Portfile to correct symlink problems and remove no-longer shipping executables (e.g., elink).

Also added +ssl variant.

Report from original reporter indicates this resolves the problem.
