gdal: add fits variant

Reported by: mazhe (Matthieu Volat) Owned by: Veence (Vincent)

Port: gdal



The gdal library can have support for the FITS image format used in astronomy through the cfitsio project. While gdal already have a lot of variants, it would be super useful to have this one added.

Attached is a patch to the Portfile that allows this, could this be commited to the port?

Thank you very much for your time,

To make this variant work the way you want it to, you'd have to leave

--without-cfitsio \

as it is in the default configure arguments (as you want it off by default).

Then, in your variant, you can do this replacement:

variant fits description {Enable FITS file format} {
    depends_lib-append       port:cfitsio
    configure.args-replace   --without-cfitsio    --with-cfitsio

Ho, thanks. I'm not that familiar with Portfile syntax, I just copied what was done in other parts of the file.

Here's an updated version.

Yeah, I think that should do it. Let's give Vince (the maintainer) time to check it out now. -- K

Hi, is there any progress or comment regarding this request? priority is not that high, but it would be nice to have it done!

Thanks again,

Vince hasn't noticed this one so far I guess.

I'll put together a PR for this (or you can if you like). Then it will get committed after a short while if it passes muster on the CI system.
