libsdl_ttf needs libsdl instead of libsdl-devel

I cannot build libsdl_ttf because it needs libsdl instead of libsdl-devel. I need libsdl-devel and libsdl_ttf to build GCCG e.g.

What is "GCCG"? I don't see a port for that.

Why does GCCG need libsdl-devel (the development version of libsdl) -- why isn't libsdl (the stable version of libsdl) sufficient?

FYI, we tried allowing libsdl_ttf to use libsdl-devel (#23496) but that didn't work and we had to undo that (#28164).

comment:3 Changed 10 years ago by Behinder (behinder) GCCG is gaming software...if you want build it yourself it needs libsdl-devel otherwise there is no headers...:( also even during build sdl shows some rotozoom.c errors but thats the part for another story...

You have misunderstood how MacPorts uses -devel ports. Please read #14540. You do not need libsdl-devel. You need libsdl.

With libdsl installed I cannot build I dont see a point...and on my machine installing libsdl WILL NOT install headers! So maybe I misunderstood something but still i cannot use that software and want avoid installing SDL separately as framwework from binary.
