Because of a security issue with tiff, I updated the tiff library.

That took out emacs.

Emacs did not get re-installed.

xpm is not installed; can't buildlink files.

Okay.  Try to force the xpm package to be built:

$ (cd ../../graphics/xpm && make update)
===> xpm is part of your X11 distribution
$ other words, emacs wants the *pkgsrc* xpm, but pkgsrc xpm won't
build because I already have a non-pkgsrc xpm.

A workaround is to change /etc/mk.conf to bind PREFER_PKGSRC to "no".
This is really a nasty thing to do, though, since the XFree86 OpenGL
has some serious bugs on the AMD64 (fixed about a year ago in Mesa, but
not imported to the X server yet, I think).

Try to build emacs with the "normal" preference of using pkgsrc versions
of libraries.


I don't really know how the dependencies work out in pkgsrc.

Perhaps this is an XPM (...pkgsrc/graphics/xpm) issue for failing to
build XPM even though I have stated that I prefer pkgsrc versions of
