#2347 closed defect (fixed)

deactivation deletes /etc symlink

When uninstalling xfig port, it removes the /etc directory (maybe because on my machine it is the only port to install things in /etc)

when i do :

tonio@bonzai:~/darwinports/dports$ port contents xfig | grep -v /opt/local Port xfig contains:

/etc/X11/app-defaults/Fig /etc/X11/app-defaults/Fig-color /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/doc/html/xfig.1.html

I understand the need of the two:

/etc/X11/app-defaults/Fig /etc/X11/app-defaults/Fig-color

but the link /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults to /etc/X11/app-defaults is not really necessary, since the system has alreafy one (and it produces a conflict when activating) The file /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/doc/html/xfig.1.html could also be located in /opt/local/share/doc/xfig
