#60035 closed defect (fixed)

llvm-9.0: sh: pkg-config: command not found

Reported by: ryandesign (Ryan Carsten Schmidt) Owned by: jeremyhu (Jeremy Huddleston Sequoia)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.6.2
Keywords: Cc: larryv (Lawrence Velázquez), kencu (Ken)
Port: llvm-9.0


llvm-9.0 uses pkg-config in its configure args but does not declare a dependency on the pkgconfig port, resulting in the error message:

sh: pkg-config: command not found

See #60034 for a log showing this.

Please also check if other llvm-* ports are affected.

It didn't actually need pkgconfig or it would never have built on the buildbot.

help me understand better please, I think this was different.

Jeremy wrote this in an unusual way, with backtiks in the the cmake configure line to drive pkg-config for the ffi flags.

without pkg-config, there was always a warning right after the cmake config line that pkg-config was not found, but never an error, as above.

so I think the backtik line just produced an empty string for the ffi includes when pkg-config was not found, but it never actually errored. But it is used to generate the proper includes if it is found ( the warning is gone when pkgconfig is added).
