emacs (+carbon) completion problem

Component: ports Version: 1.0

A fresh install of darwinports. I installed the carbon emacs-devel port. It all seems to work OK, apart from completion (of filenames and commands) giving the following error in the *Messages* buffer:

Making completion list... run-hooks: Wrong type argument: stringp, #<objfwd to t>

Thanks to Mark Dickinson for the following:

The culprit is the line

cvs.args -D20051018

in the emacs-devel portfile, which instructs cvs to check out a revision that's dated no later than Oct 18, 2005. I managed to fix the problem by simply changing this (in my local portfile repository) to use a more recent date; e.g. -D20060103. There's some old emacs bug present in that particular revision that's long since been fixed.

He also pointed out bug#6186, which seems to say this has already been fixed

bug#6186 has now (really) been fixed, and this is effectively a dupe of that, so resolving
