mmm, i am a little confused what you mean by referencing the workpath. i do use the worksrcpath to reference some files for patching but i cannot find any references to the workpath itself.

can you give an example of when it breaks? thanks for pointing this out...

Sorry, I should have attached an example to begin with.

landonf@lerkim:~> /opt/local/viewcvs/ -r foo Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/opt/local/viewcvs/", line 511, in ?

import viewcvs

ImportError: No module named viewcvs

If you look at /opt/local/viewcvs/ LIBRARY_DIR = "/Users/landonf/Documents/Code/OpenDarwin/darwinports/dports/devel /viewcvs/work/destroot/opt/local/viewcvs/lib"

Paths like this exist throughout the entirity of the viewcvs install. I have the same problem with my cm3 port, currently, and am trying to decide the best way to fix it over there. Hopefully viewcvs will be easier, cm3 is a beast.

yeah this port sucks; i installed onto a mac os x server machine and finally felt the pain. i will spend some time resolving the madness this weekend.

what's the status on this? Does anyone care for this port? If not, I see no reason not to put it into the attic until someone wants it around again. -fkr

mmm, didn't see this bug when I query this morning.... Problem of cache, I guess. Thx to fkr to point it. Anyway I post a patch to fix this bug. See bug #996.
