NetBSD: [AHA]<devel/guile-slib> dependencies update guile14->guile required for gnucash stability
System: NetBSD nda 1.6.2_STABLE NetBSD 1.6.2_STABLE (AHAv8#2) #8: Mon Jun 21 15:16:26 CEST 2004 toor@nda:/amd/nda/mounts/netbsd/src/sys/arch/sparc/compile/AHAv8#2 sparc
Architecture: sparc
Machine: sparc
	At least on sparc, gnucash is not in a working condition for a long time now.
        It compiles, can be started, but crashes after every new line checked into an account.
	Moreover, it throws a lot gtk-related error-messages and warnings.

	Im not picking on the maintainer. He is doinging a great job. Pulling up any new revision.

	Due to my analysis, guppi, guile-slib, guile-gtk and g-wrap needs to be modernised and all dependencies
	to guile14 should be replaced by guile.

	compile and try to enter a few lines of data into an account


	It was a lot of work, to build a set of patches to fix this.
	Applying them results in a rock stable gnucash (again at least on sparc)
	Please, apply them before the freeze.

	A series of patches follow. Marked by [AHA] and i.e. <math/guppi> for your convinience.
	All should be applied from your pkgsrc root. (again for your convinience.)
	OK, first fix is trivial.

	Here it goes:

cd /usr/pkgsrc
rm devel/guile-slib/patches/patch-aa
rmdir devel/guile-slib/patches
