nedi: activation fails: /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.macports.nedisyslog.plist already exists and does not belong to a registered port

Mojca and Mihai emailed that "/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.macports.nedisyslog.plist already exists and does not belong to a registered port".

The nedi port used to install this file incorrectly, bypassing the destroot. This was reported in #40700 and fixed in r128981, however a pre-activate phase was not added to the port to automatically clean up the results of the former incorrect behavior, thus leading to the activation problem now. Such a block should be added. The revision of the port needs to be increased when doing this.

Please also note that a new version is available (1.4), so the port could be upgraded at the same time as well in case someone is willing to test it. I committed r143393 to switch to perl 5.22 (#48365), but I didn't test the change as the port was a relatively complex one.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Committed with changes in r143403. My patch needed adjustment because it was testing for file existence, but the file that had been installed was a symlink, which would be broken; [file exists] will return false for a broken symlink. I adjusted it to use [file type] instead.

I don't know nedi or this portfile so I'm not updating the port to a new version right now. You can file a new ticket for that it you like.
