mapnik @3.0.19_1+gdal+libxml2+postgis+sqlite: Missing proj4 supports

Reported by: dmarteau (David Marteau) Owned by: macports@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.4.3
Keywords: Cc: stromnov (Andrew Stromnov)
Port: mapnik


Trying to run mapnik-python against macport installed mapnik library leads to the following error

RuntimeError: Cannot initialize proj_transform for given projections without proj4 support
(-DMAPNIK_USE_PROJ4): '+proj=merc +a=6378137 +b=6378137 +lat_ts=0.0 +lon_0=0.0 +x_0=0.0 +y_0=0 +k=1.0

+datum=NAD83 +units=m +no_defs'

mapnik-config --cflags --cxxflags return the following

-I/opt/local/include -I/opt/local/include/mapnik/agg -I/opt/local/include/mapnik -I/opt/local/include 
-I/opt/local/include/freetype2 -I/opt/local/include/libxml2 -I/opt/local/include/postgresql10

In appears that mapnik is not compiled wint proj4 supports and there is no variants for enabling this.

Please could you add MAPNIK_USE_PROJ4 supports as variant ?

proj4 is in the dependancies but it is not apparently getting used.

$ port info --depends mapnik
depends_build: pkgconfig
depends_lib: boost, harfbuzz, icu, libpng, jpeg, tiff, webp, zlib, freetype, proj4

It appears the PROJ option is enabled by default in mapnik build configuration but the proj library is not able to find it:

Checking for C library proj... no

I have found that the Portfile define the wrong path for PROJ_INCLUDES and PROJ_LIBS since proj4 and proj (proj5) are in their respecctive install directory.
