wget.texi:6: warning: unrecognized encoding name `UTF-8'.

Unknown option: utf8
make[2]: *** [wget.1] Error 1

This continues to be a problem. If I understand the failure correctly, the perl dependency used in this port


allows /usr/bin/pod2man but, on 10.6, the version provided is too old and doesn't accept the --utf8 option required here. Using a dependency style that requires a specific MacPorts perl version throughout this port would probably correct this issue.

This failure causes gucharmap to fail as well on this platform.

Note also that MacPorts perl ports install a versioned pod2man


so some further configuration is required to get the port to use it.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Builds successfully on the 10.6 buildbot with this fix. Not tested on earlier OS versions but hopefully fixes problems with them as well.
