octave fails to build on 10.6.8 because of missing /usr/bin/iconutil

Description

Hello,

octave @4.0.2_0+accelerate+app+docs+fltk+gfortran+graphicsmagick+java+qt4gui+sound fails to install cleanly on my machine as it is missing /usr/bin/iconutil. This file is apparently only available in Xcode 4.5 and later. Setting the file to an empty bash script allowed the install to continue, minus putting the icons into the correct location.

Did r149057 fix the problem?

Still fails to build properly, the new code did not execute, the program looked for iconutil again. Not sure why. I m still investigating. I performed

port uninstall octave @4.0.2_0+accelerate+app+docs+fltk+gfortran+graphicsmagick+java+qt4gui+sound port -v install octave

Should I have run a selfupdate or something like that?

Yes, you must run selfupdate to get the latest code.

Replying to mcalhoun@…:

Yes, you must run selfupdate to get the latest code.

After port selfupdate the install works and I now have some nice icons in /Applications/Octave. So r149057 works for me.
