db50: new port of Berkeley DB version 5.0.21

Reported by: pixilla (Bradley Giesbrecht) Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.8.2
Keywords: Cc: blair (Blair Zajac), MarcusCalhoun-Lopez (Marcus Calhoun-Lopez)
Port: db50


I saw on unix-porting@… some talking about Berkeley DB version 5.0.21. Since there is no db50 in macports I decided to create on as an exercise. I don't use bdb directly so I don't know how well this works. I created a patch for that fixes a couple configure options that are ignored making for a nicer install.

Also configure checks for sed but only uses it once leaning on a hardcoded "sed" command elsewhere which seemed dumb but maybe there is a reason. I'm thinking if the patch works well here I may offer it upstream.

Mostly I just want some critical review by MP's committers as to the quality of the Portfile, if time allows:)

Thanks, Bradley Giesbrecht

Perhaps our existing db46 and db47 maintainers could take a look. Ideally, all the BerkeleyDB ports would be kept similar and maintained by the same maintainer(s).

My comments after glancing at your submission are that the epoch and revision lines should be deleted, and I don't think there's any particular need to replace "sed" with "$(SED)" in the Makefile.
