Component: ports Version: 2.3.5

Port: suck

Description (last modified by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt))

Was doing a "port upgrade outdated", with an older version of suck installed.


Error: for port suck returned: command execution failed
Please see the log file for port suck for details:


port install suck

Got same error.

Dumped the log file specified (attached(, and found lots of

fatal error: 'phrases.h' file not found

messages during compilation.

Manually changed to working directory, and did a make phrases.h, then repeated port install suck and it installed and worked OK.

Am on OS X Yosemite 10.10.5

This is a parallel build problem. We can work around it by disabling parallel building.

The project appears to be abandoned (its homepage disappeared years ago already), otherwise I would have suggested that the developers should fix their Makefile dependency rules.
