whois update to 4.7.26

Reported by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt) Owned by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.6.0
Keywords: Cc:
Port: whois


whois 4.7.26 is out. But I can't update the port to it because it won't compile:

--->  Fetching whois
--->  Verifying checksum(s) for whois
--->  Extracting whois
--->  Configuring whois
--->  Building whois with target all
Error: Target returned: shell command " cd "/opt/local/var/macports/build/_Users_rschmidt_macports_dports_net_whois/work/whois-4.7.26" && make all " returned error 2

Error: Unable to upgrade port: 1

I can't find a changelog, but it seems that 4.7.26 now builds mkpasswd by default, and to build mkpasswd it adds -lcrypt to the LDFLAGS, and this option is not supported in Mac OS X.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

According to this message, there is no libcrypt because the crypt function is already in the system's C library, so -lcrypt can simply be omitted. I added a patch to accomplish this and committed the update to 4.7.26 in r35825. I'll inform the developer of the software of this problem.

The developer indicated that we are meant to patch the Makefile as appropriate to our operating system, so the patch will remain in the port indefinitely.
