rb-rubygems @1.3.7_1 gem1.8 symlinked to missing file

Reported by: matthew-macports@… Owned by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.1.3
Keywords: Cc: mr_bond@…
Port: rb-rubygems


Installing rb-rubygems using sudo port install rb-rubygems on my machine creates a symlink /opt/local/bin/gem-1.8 to the nonexistent file /opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_tarballs_ports_ruby_rb-rubygems/rb-rubygems/work/destroot//opt/local/libexec/ruby1.8/gem

If I understand this right, it should be a symlink to /opt/local/libexec/ruby1.8/gem but the symlink has been created with the staging destroot included. Looking at the rb-rubygems Portfile, in post-destroot it does:

ln -s ${destroot}/${ruby.bindir}/gem ${destroot}${prefix}/bin/gem${ruby.link_binaries_suffix}

I guess this should be:

ln -s ${prefix}/${ruby.bindir}/gem ${destroot}${prefix}/bin/gem${ruby.link_binaries_suffix} that when it is installed from ${destroot} to ${prefix} it points at where the binary will be. Or, if symlink rewriting is meant to happen, it doesn't appear to be doing so here for some reason.

ruby.bindir already starts with prefix.
