libplist: installs a program called plutil, masking Apple's

Reported by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt) Owned by: rmstonecipher@…
Priority: High Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.0.3
Keywords: Cc: f.jean@…, cooljeanius (Eric Gallager)
Port: libplist

Description

libplist installs a program called "plutil". It's a completely different program from Apple's plutil. This explains these warnings I've been seeing when building various ports:

Usage: plistutil -i|--infile in_file.plist -o|--outfile out_file.plist [--debug]

	-i or --infile: The file to read in.
	-o or --outfile: The file to convert to.
	-d, -v or --debug: Provide extended debug information.

libplist should install the program under a different name, or in a directory that is not in $PATH, or perhaps even not at all.

Yes, they renamed plutil to plistutil. Hooray! We should apply this patch to the port ASAP.
