#41904 closed defect (fixed)

Notmuch will not build under Mavericks.

Reported by: cro (C. R. Oldham) Owned by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)

Component: ports Version: 2.2.1

Description (last modified by mf2k (Frank Schima))

Notmuch fails to build, erring out in the make process with

emacs/coolj.el emacs/notmuch-print.el > emacs/.eldeps.tmp && \ 
        (cmp -s emacs/.eldeps.tmp emacs/.eldeps || mv emacs/.eldeps.tmp emacs/.eldeps) 
mkdir: .deps/.: No such file or directory 
make: *** [command-line-arguments.o] Error 1 

A similar issue with brew users revealed that mkdir under 10.9 fails with 'mkdir -p .deps/.'. This worked under 10.8 and previous. The suggestion from the brew post (see is to replace the two '@mkdir -p .deps/.' lines in Makefile.local with '@mkdir -p .deps/$(patsubst %/.,%,$(@D))'. This seems to work for me.

I just updated notmuch to 0.17, which builds fine for me on Mavericks. Can you test if that works for you too?

0.17 builds fine on Mavericks - reopen if you still have issues
