leptonica @1.76.0 requires giflib 5

Port: leptonica


leptonica has a dependency on giflib but as of version 1.76.0 it does not use it because it now requires giflib 5 while MacPorts still has giflib 4:

checking for DGifOpenFileHandle in -lgif... yes
checking gif_lib.h usability... yes
checking gif_lib.h presence... yes
checking for gif_lib.h... yes
checking giflib is at least version 5.1 (but not 5.1.2)... no

Our options are:

  1. Remove the giflib dependency from leptonica, add a configure arg to tell it not to try to use giflib, and increase leptonica's revision
  2. Upgrade giflib to version 5, and increase leptonica's revision to rebuild it
