clang-9.0 @9.0.1_4: dependency cycle on Snow Leopard (clang-9.0 -> llvm-9.0 -> python27 -> openssl -> clang-9.0)

Reported by: Tevo45 (Estevan Castilho) Owned by: cjones051073 (Chris Jones)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.7.1
Keywords: snowleopard legacy-os Cc: jeremyhu (Jeremy Huddleston Sequoia), neverpanic (Clemens Lang), larryv (Lawrence Velázquez)
Port: openssl

Description

It is currently impossible to install clang-9.0 on Snow Leopard, seemingly due to a dependency cycle with openssl:

$ sudo port install clang-9.0
--->  Computing dependencies for clang-9.0
The following dependencies will be installed: 
 clang-9.0
 llvm-9.0
 openssl
 python27
 xar
Continue? [Y/n]: 
Error: The following dependencies were not installed because all of them have unmet dependencies (likely due to a dependency cycle): llvm-9.0 python27 openssl clang-9.0 xar
Error: Follow https://guide.macports.org/#project.tickets if you believe there
is a bug.
Error: Processing of port clang-9.0 failed

openssl is pulled in as a dependency to python27:

$ port rdeps clang-9.0

This is a fresh MacPorts installation on Mac OS X 10.6.8, it appears the issue can also be currently seen on the openssl Snow Leopard automatic build #75127: https://build.macports.org/builders/ports-10.6_x86_64-builder/builds/75127.

https://github.com/macports/macports-ports/pull/12514 appears to have changed openssl's compiler selection for 10.6.

comment:2 Changed 9 days ago by cjones051073 (Chris Jones)

Can you explain how the PR has changed the compiler selection, as I don't see it ?

comment:3 Changed 9 days ago by jmroot (Joshua Root)

By removing the part with the comment

# Having the stdlib set to libc++ on 10.6 causes a dependency on a
 # macports-clang compiler to be added, which would be a dep cycle.

Just clear compiler.cxx_standard since openssl is all C anyway.

In 22aae98bd2b8b72f7e10f7bec302f3af257fe98b/macports-ports (master):

openssl: clear compiler.cxx_standard
See: #63616

comment:5 Changed 9 days ago by cjones051073 (Chris Jones)

the openssl port doesn't build anything at all, it just creates sym links. Anyway I have pushed that change in https://github.com/macports/macports-ports/commit/22aae98bd2b8b72f7e10f7bec302f3af257fe98b
