Hi , Thanks just attached log file afater clean up and build was again failed.

comment:5 Changed 8 years ago by parecejiit@…

Hi can i know if you would need anything else to help my problem?

comment:6 Changed 8 years ago by parecejiit@…

May i know if this is the normal turnaround time to get a help related to macports?, have not seen any message so far , i have already uploaded requested log file.

It seems this issue is happening due to "png.h" header file....created by libpng

Could you please let me knof if this issue can be fixed or shall i look out for another options?.

I wanted to install QUCS which need qt3-mac to be installed.

Summary: qt3-mac is not able to build on MAC OSX (darwin)qt3-mac: error: invalid use of incomplete type ‘struct png_info_def’

Sorry, qt3-mac is ancient. If you need this for your own code, consider using the qt4-mac port instead and updating your code to be compatible with Qt 4. If you need this because of other ports in MacPorts, then those other ports should be updated to use Qt 4, if possible.

This is due to incompatibility of qt3-mac's code with the latest versions of libpng. I tried using the -qt-libpng configure flag, but the problem is that /opt/local/include still takes precedence when searching for headers for some reason. Trace mode didn't help (libpng was not hidden, but maybe I made some mistake somewhere).

The port would have to be fixed in a similar way as #36320 (r99159), but that requires someone's time and it's questionable whether this port still has anything to offer to 10.5 and 10.6 users after all those years. Below are the errors when using macports-clang-3.4. I would be in favour of actually removing qt3-mac. Ports that still have some traces of qt3-mac:

  • qtc-qtsharp (probably works with qt3)
  • qtsharp (probably works with qt3)
  • k3dsurf (works with qt3)
  • wap11gui (probably works with qt3)
  • xglobe (probably works with qt3)
  • qwt (works with qt4-mac)
  • qwtplot3d (works with qt4-mac)

In 2e00fe3a/macports-ports:

qt3[-mac]: various cleanups

  • remove conflict with qt4-mac and (no longer existing) qt4-mac-devel
  • disable builds of qt3-mac on > 10.6
  • disable livecheck (there will be no newer versions released anyway)
  • use newer checksums
  • fix homepage and master_sites

qt3-mac is broken:
See: #30679 (doesn't work on > 10.6)
See: #39249 (compatibility with latest libpng)
