gnuplot-4.4.0 builds but run fails: Incompatible library version libfreetype.6.dylib

Reported by: boris.blankleider@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.8.2
Keywords: Cc:
Port: gnuplot

Description (last modified by mf2k (Frank Schima))

After a fresh install of macports 1.8.2 on OSX 10.5.8, I installed gnuplot with no problems. However the resulting build fails to run:

$ gnuplot
dyld: Library not loaded: /opt/local/lib/libfreetype.6.dylib
  Referenced from: /opt/local/bin/gnuplot
  Reason: Incompatible library version: gnuplot requires version 11.0.0 or later, but libfreetype.6.dylib provides version 10.0.0

$ sudo port upgrade outdated
Error: No ports matched the given expression

freetype has been updated to version 2.4.1. Is this still a problem for you. BTW, everything looks just like on my system where it works.

The problem got resolved recently when a similar runtime failure occurred with xfig, and it was suggested that my DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH was screwing things up. Once I fixed this path both xfig and gnuplot ran like a charm - see https://trac.macports.org/ticket/25723
