cdb 0.75 fails to build, "./compile" does not find "cdbget.c"

Reported by: bugz@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…

Component: ports Version: 1.0

A strange error message, that told me it cannot found cdbget.c. Due to my lack of experience in this field, I can only guess, that it is simple to remove or workaround, but I don't know how.

Port Version: 1.200

Here is the output of port -d -v cdb:

and here the output of port -d -v cdb (with "make -d" as build.cmd in the portfile):

I could at least resolve the error with the head command, by replacing all occurences of "head -1" to "head -c 1" in the Makefile of cdb, like the manual page of head tells me:


head -- display first lines of a file


head [-n count] [file ...]

So this is specific part of the problem is probably an bug with different versions of head on Mac OS X 10.4 and other Unixes ?!? Version of head: "This is lwp-request version 2.06 (libwww-perl-5.803)"
