A list of problems I encountered with pkgsrc-2005Q3 while compiling under
NetBSD 2.1:

Interestingly, I never had so much trouble with a pkgsrc release before.
Something (or things) are obviously wrong somewhere but I am unable to
pinpoint them.  My last packages build was on 2.0 using pkgsrc-2004Q3
a year back, and the only package that failed building for me then was Dia.
I had roughly the same list of packages to compile to suit my desktop and
server needs.

I thought that a single PR might be enough for all these, since there might
be a common problem somewhere which causes most dependency problems.
The number of packages which compiled flawlessly in my list is 367, so things
otherwise generally went well.

Items with an asterisk (*) are packages I didn't build yet successfuly.
Others needed minor tweaks to build which I could apply.

Items with a plus sign (+) had some problem related to the native X11R6.
They needed that I add the following to mk.conf to build them successfuly:
LDFLAGS+=-Wl,-R/usr/X11R6/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib

Note: I don't remember which, but some package also needed that I add a
fontconfig package dependency via .include in its Makefile in order for it
to build.

	vim		Configure problems, it uses -lncurses because of
			CONFIGURE_ARGS+= --with-tlib=ncurses
			in Makefile instead of --with-tlib=curses
			(was "fixed" to compile using pkgsrc under linux?)
			Would pkgsrc popularity lead to other such non-netbsd
			friendly changes?
			Note the same problem applies for vim-gtk, vim-gtk2,
			possibly also vim-xforms and vim-kde...

	wget		had to fix conditionals for openssl in http-* with
			NetBSD 2.0.2 (or 2.0_STABLE dating a few months back)
			Because of OpenSSL version change (this affected no
			other package)
			Hmm actually I was told it was because of OpenSSL
			upgrade in 2.1, but under 2.1 the same problem

+	MesaLib		missing -I/usr/pkg/X11R6/include

	libdvdcss	url to download the file is obsolete and should be
			changed, works otherwise

+	gd		missing -I/usr/pkg/include and -I/usr/pkg/X11R6/include

*	gphoto		both hashes mismatch (gphoto-0.4.3.tar.gz)
+	gphoto2		Another problem where an existing headerfile can't be

	python		Error creating package, had to use pkg_tarup.
			Caused by some files supplied to tar which aren't found
			causing tar to report error and make package to fail
			Probably incorrect PLIST

	xlockmore	Same as for python, incorrect PLIST

+	SDL		Again the missing -I/-L

*	cscope		Configure problems.
			Moreover, also seems to refer to ncurses.

*	nspr		Fails in configure script

*	gaim		Requires nspr above so couldn't build obviously

+	xforms		Missing an -I/usr/X11R6/include with -lXext, needed
			to manually fix Makefile during build since it won't
			take LDFLAGS from mk.conf (using imake)

	SDL_sound	Required addition of .include for dependencies of
			flac and speex

	SDL_mixer	Required addition of .include for dependencies of

*	db4		Compilation error

*	fceu		Compilation error

*	MesaDemos	Compilation error

	xawtv		--disable-aalib didn't work, so had to remove it from
			Makefile and add aalib dependency via .include
			Also had to add dependency to libdv

	mplayer-share	Had to add --disable-aa in Makefile.common

	sylpheed-claws	Requires gpgme03, but looks for gpgme-config,
			so doesn't build the pgpmime plugin unless
			I made a symlink from gpgme-config to gpgme03-config,
			could perhaps be considered a gpgme03 package bug
			which should have a symlink.
			Moreover, had to be built before abiword, since
			abiword requires gnu libiconv, and if that is
			installed sylpheed-claws doesn't seem to build
			properly. (unless fix applied to abiword to use
			system iconv)

	abiword		By default failed to build without libiconv package
			installed;  Had to comment USE_GNU_ICONV and
			the libiconv buildlink .include for it to use the
			system iconv (another gnu system friendly fix?)

My /etc/mk.conf is as follows:

CFLAGS+=-march=i686 -O2 -pipe

.ifdef BSD_PKG_MK

# Only used as necessary when packages build missed these
#LDFLAGS+=-Wl,-R/usr/X11R6/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib

[...acceptable licenses...]




Otherwise, $CFLAGS, $CPPFLAGS, $LDFLAGS aren't set by my environment
at this time (i.e. via /etc/profile or ~/.shrc) so it doesn't seem to
have influenced.

The packages I would like the most to be fixed by preference would be:
cscope, db4, nspr, vim
