commit 9e40a5a compiler_blacklist_versions pg breaks Portfile build(s)

Reported by: TP75 Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: base Version: 2.6.1
Keywords: Cc: dbevans (David B. Evans), jmroot (Joshua Root)
Port: libvpx


The recent update of ' macports-ports/_resources/port1.0/group/compiler_blacklist_versions-1.0.tcl ' leads to issues.

jmroot: This does remove support for blacklisting particular versions of apple-gcc-4.2, but nothing in the tree uses that, and nor should it really.

Unfortunately, this breaks 'GIMP2' and especially 'libvpx' builds.

Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "compiler_blacklist_versions._get_compiler_version"

Please note the error leads to hassle in handling the 'libpvx' Portfile with usual 'port' commands in addition to the a.m. failure.

Hope this helps.

This may be a duplicate of #59226 but includes details on the MacPorts 'base' and the apparent core issue.

Furthermore, as a hotfix workaround one may compile 'libvpx' after establishing a local Portfile definition and commenting out the follwing lines in the deviated Portfile as follows:

#if {[string match {macports-clang-3.[5-9]} ${configure.compiler}] ||
#    [string match {macports-clang-[4-9].*} ${configure.compiler}] ||
#    [string match {macports-clang-[1-9][0-9].*} ${configure.compiler}] ||
#    (${configure.compiler} eq "clang" && [compiler_blacklist_versions._get_compiler_version ${configure.compiler}] > 602)} {
#        build.args-append CFLAGS_S=-fno-integrated-as

Please note this is an unofficial hotfix and is at one's sole risk. At least this works for 'libvpx' in the a.m. environment.
