Mercurial 1.1 port fails to build using MacPorts 1.7

Trying to build mercurial 1.1 using the latest MacPorts 1.7 fails with the following error message:

DEBUG: Assembled command: 'cd "/opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_ports_devel_mercurial/work/mercurial-1.1" && /opt/local/bin/python2.5 build'

    elif map(int, cfg_target.split('.')) > map(int, cur_target.split('.')):
ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: ''

This seems to be caused by MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET not being set correctly.

One thing I forgot to mention is that even though distutils seems to get an empty MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET, the environment variable is correctly set by MacPorts as shown by the following line from the log:

Builds fine for me on 1.7, what version of python25 do you have installed? Use port installed python25.

comment:5 Changed 12 years ago by luc@…

% port installed python25
The following ports are currently installed:
  python25 @2.5.2_7+darwin_9 (active)

More details: distutils looks for MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET in the "/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/config/Makefile" file. Mine has it empty:

# Deployment target selected during configure, to be checked
# by distutils. The export statement is needed to ensure that the
# deployment target is active during build.

Might need to rebuild python25, as MacPorts 1.6 did not set MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET. Do it like so:

sudo port -fn upgrade python25

Replying to jmr@…:

Might need to rebuild python25, as MacPorts 1.6 did not set MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET.

That was it. Upgrading failed as well however, but uninstalling, reinstalling and then upgrading mercurial worked just fine. Thanks for the help, I guess this can be closed now.
