Unable to Upgrade "libheif" on Lion -- Needs "rust" Which Only Builds on Yosemite or Later!

Reported by: RobK88 Owned by: MarcusCalhoun-Lopez (Marcus Calhoun-Lopez)
Priority: Normal Milestone:

Keywords: tiger leopard snowleopard lion mountainlion mavericks Cc: herbygillot (Herby Gillot)
Port: libheif rust


I am trying to upgrade libheif on an old Mac running Lion. But the upgrade fails since rust is NOW needed and rust can only be built on Macs running Yosemite or later.

$port outdated
The following installed ports are outdated:
libheif                        1.11.0_0 < 1.11.0_2 

$ sudo port upgrade outdated

Probably we should remove whatever's depending on rust from libheif's dependencies on 10.9 and earlier.

marcus added a bunch of deps here [70e4ce26e111e264197f037ad8f64297ac8de986/macports-ports] and I had to disable all of them to get builds on older systems working again.

I haven't worked through yet which can be fixed and which can't.

There is a pull request that attempts to fix this problem.
This seemed to work for me, but if Ken would like more time to see if other changes need to be made, I would be happy to wait.

I can confirm that Marcus' proposed fix works on my old Mac running Lion. I was able to upgrade libheif after applying the fix.

port installed libheif
The following ports are currently installed:
  libheif @1.11.0_0
  libheif @1.11.0_2 (active)

I'm not very familiar with libheif, but its README suggests that dav1d and rav1e are optional:

For AVIF, libaom, dav1d, or rav1e are used as codecs.

(emphasis mine)

Would it be better to use variants to include/exclude them instead of only excluding them for older macOS? I've been waiting for rust to compile for the past 45 minutes and I'd rather exclude it in the future.

comment:6 Changed 18 months ago by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)

If there is a reason why someone would want to disable the use of these optional codecs, then there should be variants. I know of no such reason, in which case there should not be variants for the sake of simplicity.

Well they all handle AV1, which does seem a bit redundant. Although, rav1e is only an encoder and dav1d is only a decoder. Looks like aom is both.
