Cc'ing the port's maintainer.

This looks like it could be another variant of the "unable to infer tagged configuration" error we've seen with several ports since switching CC from "gcc" to "/usr/bin/gcc-4.0"

comment:2 Changed 13 years ago by jon@…

If I compile Nessus libraries from outside of Macports (i.e unpack tarball, ./comfigure, make) it works fine.

The difference seems to be on the name of the compiler that is used, i.e "gcc" (works) or "/usr/bin/gcc-4.0" (doesnt work)

Setting "configure.cc" to "gcc" in the Portfile seems to work. I'm not sure if this fits with the prevailing policy, but it does fix the build

Same bug (and same fix) apply to "nessus-core" and "libnasl" ports.

Nessus-plugins seems unaffected.

comment:4 Changed 13 years ago by marktrolley@…

Thanks for the pointer on how to fix this. Any word on when it will make it into the ports tree?

comment:5 Changed 13 years ago by jon@…

No idea. I don't have commit access, and I don't know if my change fits with policy. There has been no comment in 2 months from the maintainer, so don't get your hopes up :-(

I've just built @2.2.6_1 on Lion, and all seems good now. This ticket can be closed.
