gtkwave @3.3.37 [install-data-hook] Error 1 (update-desktop-database)

Reported by:… Owned by: gwright@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.1.2
Keywords: Cc:
Port: gtkwave


Mac OS X 10.7.4
MacPorts 2.1.2
xcode 4.2.1 build 4D502

Error seems to be:

:info:destroot make[4]: Entering directory `/opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_ports_cad_gtkwave/gtkwave/work/gtkwave-3.3.37/share/applications':info:destroot /opt/local/bin/update-desktop-database
:info:destroot No directories in update-desktop-database search path could be processed and updated.
:info:destroot make[4]: *** [install-data-hook] Error 1

I'm new to macports but am an engineer and tried as many things as I could find to fix the problem. There were a couple of things that failed in dependencies but I seem to be past them.

I had similar issues, but used the flag disable-mime-update during configure for install Here is the complete command I used

./configure --prefix=$HOME --disable-xz --disable-mime-update

Hope this workaround helps
