Subject: PR/51654 CVS commit: pkgsrc/editors/emacs20
Date: Sat, 26 Nov 2016 06:38:06 +0000

 Module Name:	pkgsrc
 Committed By:	dholland
 Date:		Sat Nov 26 06:38:06 UTC 2016
 Modified Files:
 	pkgsrc/editors/emacs20: Makefile distinfo
 	pkgsrc/editors/emacs20/patches: patch-af
 Log Message:
 Use paxctl +a like in emacs21 to make the build work on -current. It seems
 that if you dump with a non-ASLR temacs you get a working emacs binary, and
 if you don't you don't, although I don't really see why -- perhaps it's
 something broken in crtstuff. Closes PR 51654.
 Note that pre-ASLR emacs20 binaries not dumped by an ASLR temacs also
 blow up in the same way, which doesn't make much sense either, but
 undoubtedly it's all connected.
 It's not particularly good that we apparently don't have backwards
 compatibility for old Emacs binaries because of this, but for the time
 being I'm more worried about it working at all.
 PKGREVISION++ again, to 22.
