Re: is the /usr/X11R7/bin/imake suitable to meet pkgsrc dependencies? its not detected..

Spoke too soon.

even with xpkgwedge, and x11-links, it still seems to think it doesn't have libXext >= 0.99 when the version in /usr/xsrc/external/mit/ libXext is quite clearly 1.0.4

I think there are still some corner cases about making pkgsrc grok native X11R7 via xsrc which I have to learn about.

help please!

Problem between chair and keyboard:

1) if its not Xorg from pkgsrc, then definitionally its X11_TYPE=native 2) if its native, you have to have x11-links and xpkgwedge dependencies satisfied properly 3) you have to tell mk.conf about 1) and also X11BASE=/usr/X11R7 because the default is not X11R7

so I now have X11_TYPE=native *and* X11BASE=/usr/X11R7 and then pkgsrc can find its dependencies properly, and all is good (tm)

solving PBCK is of course, harder. they shoot horses..

I don't want to send-pr this if its not relevant/real, but having just installed X11R7 for current on the path, I find I can't make pkgsrc/wm/tvtwm without it installing imake in pkgsrc.

yet, there clearly is an imake in /usr/X11R7/bin/imake, there kinda has to be to make X11R7 after all..

my path has /usr/X11R7/bin in it.
