Also, if there are files in incorrect places (and possibly non-standard directories that have been created), will macports clean up after this package is removed -- delete the incorrect files & directories?

I'd like to prevent my system from being polluted with orphan files & directories.

Cc maintainer. No files will be orphaned, they'll be removed on uninstall like anything else. The warning is due to files being installed outside the MacPorts prefix.

Assigning to maintainer.

lesstif appears to intend to install files in ${x11prefix}/LessTif so the keyword destroot.violate_mtree yes should be added to the portfile.

lesstif installs manpages into ${x11prefix}/man which is an error. The port should install manpages into ${x11prefix}/share/man (or possibly ${prefix}/share/man).

Jeremy changed the port r43176 (lesstif @0.95.0_1) to install in ${prefix} instead of ${x11prefix} (see #17508) but it still violates the mtree.

FYI, upstream recommends using opemotif instead. We may want to just delete the lesstif port.

Cc Me!

I would agree to remove it - only the variant puredarwin for xpdf use lesstif

Jeremy, you updated this port last Oct. Do you object to removing this port?

comment:11 Changed 3 years ago by jeremyhu (Jeremy Huddleston Sequoia)

I sure don't. I recommended deleting it in some other threads.
