py38-gssapi: OSError: dlopen(, 6): image not found

Reported by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt) Owned by: tobypeterson

Component: ports Version: 2.6.2

Port: py-gssapi


py38-gssapi fails to build on 10.6:

Building from Cython files...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 173, in <module>
    GSSAPI_LIB = ctypes.CDLL(os.path.join(main_path, main_lib))
  File "/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.8/lib/python3.8/ctypes/", line 369, in __init__
    self._handle = _dlopen(self._name, mode)
OSError: dlopen(, 6): image not found

Ignoring the unusual .so suffix for a moment, what seems to be happening is that (from py-gssapi uses the macOS GSS framework on 10.7 and later:

osx_has_gss_framework = False
if sys.platform == 'darwin':
    mac_ver = [int(v) for v in platform.mac_ver()[0].split('.')]
    osx_has_gss_framework = (mac_ver >= [10, 7, 0])
    if osx_has_gss_framework:
        link_args = ['-framework', 'GSS']
        link_args = shlex.split(get_output('krb5-config --libs gssapi'))

So I think this means a dependency on port:kerberos5 should be added if {${os.platform} eq "darwin" && ${os.major} < 11}.

I’d prefer to use the same dependencies on all platforms if possible. I don’t have any way to test on older operating systems, so maybe I’ll just have it use k5 on Catalina and see how it goes.

Sure, that would be fine.

We do already have other situations though where deps vary by OS version. For example, mongodb uses the macOS Security framework on El Capitan and later and openssl on older systems where the Security framework isn't new enough.
