#39881 closed defect (fixed)

html-xml-utils @6.3_0 Odd --program-prefix

Reported by: smurfair@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Low Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.2.0
Keywords: Cc: kurthindenburg (Kurt Hindenburg)
Port: html-xml-utils


I just noticed that this Portfile contains the peculiar:

configure.args      --program-prefix=w3

This builds the executables, prefixing their names so that hxselect, for instance, becomes w3hxselect. This could cause confusion, with shared scripts for example, since that naming convention doesn't seem to exist anywhere beyond MacPorts.

I pruned that line from my Portfile and did a custom build, but I wouldn't presume to submit it as a replacement since that would then potentially mess up the workflow of anybody using the existing version. Would it be possible for the port to be installed with the addition of "properly" named symlinks pointing to executables or vice versa?

This port has added that prefix literally since it was created. I have no idea why.
