Description (last modified by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt))

Google has a library to aid in reading and writing KML and KMZ files used by google earth and other GIS programs. It is called libkml. It is currently at version 1.0.1

It compiles nicely on macs (10.5 and 1.6) and linux.

If a port could be added for this library that would be awesome. It is the typical configure, make, make check, make install style.

It's dependencies I think are naturally meet by 10.6 itself.

The download is
If I knew how to make portfiles I would do this myself.

Thanks, Kyle

Thanks for the suggestion. I added the port in r58047.

The best way to learn how to write portfiles is to read The Guide and read existing portfiles.
