#14317 closed defect (fixed)

xercesc does not include libxerces-c.a

Reported by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt) Owned by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.6.0
Keywords: Cc: chris.ridd@…


The xercesc port (I checked 2.7.0_1 and 2.8.0_0) includes the shared library (libxerces-c.dylib) but not the static library (libxerces-c.a). Ports should strive to build both shared and static libraries if possible, and in particular, I need libxerces-c.a to build a portfile for enigma.

The enigma build instructions include instructions on building libxerces-c.a. This is what they say to do:

6(a) Then I had to do the following important step, which create a
   static link library, as the MacOSX version of the xerces-c 2.7
   build does not do that. Put the following in an executable file
   in the $XERCESCROOT/src/xercesc directory, cd to that directory
   and run it.

   make -n XML_LIB_DIR=$XERCESCROOT/lib/dummy |
     grep 'c++ .*\.dylib' |
     tr \  \\n |
     grep '\.o$' |
     ( cd ../../obj ; xargs ar rcs $XERCESCROOT/lib/libxerces-c.a )

    sudo cp $XERCESCROOT/lib/libxerces-c.a /usr/local/lib/
    sudo ranlib /usr/local/lib/libxerces-c.a

This may not be the best way to do it in a MacPorts portfile, so just take it as a reference. Maybe runConfigure's -s option would be helpful.
