Description

Eg,

Failed to parse file x11/wine-devel/Portfile: can't read "configure.compiler": Failed to locate 'xcrun' in path: '/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin' or at its MacPorts configuration time location, did you move it?

Total number of ports parsed:	398 
Ports successfully parsed:	356 
Ports failed:			42 
Up-to-date ports skipped:	12965

The following installed ports are outdated:

Note that this affects more than 10% of ports updated in svn for me.

Oops, no, it's worse than that. I can't upgrade any of the ports listed as outdated, either, without xcrun.

Looks like xcrun was introduced in Xcode 3.1.3. After upgrading to Xcode 3.1.4 I now have /usr/bin/xcrun.

Thank you very much for the hint!

In the spirit of paying forward, I learned that Apple hides their old dev tools, but doesn't make them completely inaccessible. A post on the web pointed me to

http://connect.apple.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/MemberSite.woa/wo/5.1.17.2.1.3.3.1.0.1.1.0.3.1.3.3.1

You will need to log in as an ADC member (AFAIK you can sign up for free at http://developer.apple.com/). You may need to change the section of that page from Applications to Developer Tools in the right-hand "Dowloads" sidebar. The XCode 3.1.4 download link is way down the page, approximately bottom of the middle third.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Resolved in r89359. The check for xcrun is now guarded inside the catch clause. If xcrun is not present, then the conventional compiler search will still find it.
