#39917 new defect

arm-elf-gdb conflicts with binutils

Reported by: irony42@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.2.0
Keywords: Cc: cooljeanius (Eric Gallager)
Port: arm-elf-gdb binutils

Description (last modified by larryv (Lawrence Velázquez))

arm-elf-gdb installs a lot of files with a very high potential for conflicts (and one that conflicts with port:binutils)

These file are:

/opt/local/share/gdb/syscalls/
    amd64-linux.xml, gdb-syscalls.dtd, i386-linux.xml, ppc-linux.xml, ppc64-linux.xml
/opt/local/share/info/
    annotate.info, bfd.info, configure.info, gdb.info, gdb.info-*, gdbint.info, gdbint.info-*, stabs.info

/opt/local/share/info/bfd.info conflicts with port:binutils... perhaps this "bfd" thing should be packaged as a separate port (there are more "bfd" files these ports share in common).

/opt/local/share/info/bfd.info conflicts with port:binutils... perhaps this "bfd" thing should be packaged as a separate port
(there are more "bfd" files these ports share in common).

The regular gdb port also installs stuff from bfd, and also conflicts with binutils: #43591 and some of the other cross-gdb ports: #43098

Also, this is not the exact same conflict, but the issue of gdb (and by extension, binutils) conflicting with various cross-gdb installations has come up recently on the upstream gdb-patches mailing lists: http://sourceware.org/ml/gdb-patches/2014-07/msg00007.html
