| Please try again, drochner committed changes to pango that might help
No luck, same result.
If it matters, while I updated pkgsrc (and got the pango update that
you refer to i that), pango itself was not rebuilt (it didn't get
a revbump for that update, so I assumed that pango itself wouldn't
be affected, just its buildlink3.mk file for others to use).
And I should have included this (the actual error) the last time - but the
way I was building everything made it difficult then (for these 6.99.12
amd64 packages I'm not using pkg_comp as I usually do, just doing live
installs on a running system, with output in an xterm, so by the time I
confirmed that simply building & installing Xft2 fixed the problem, the
error message was long gone ...
But what happens is ...
===> Creating toolchain wrappers for seamonkey-2.12nb4
ERROR: Xft2>=2.1 Xft2>=2.1nb2 is not installed; can't buildlink files.
*** Error code 1
And sure enough, Xft2 is not installed (I pkg_deleted it). What's more
after that, after this build of seamonkey failed (I suspect xulrunner
would fail the same way, but didn't test that again) I reinstalled seamonkey
from the previously build binpkg, but completly forgot Xft2, (pkg_add
didn't just add it as a dependency either, it really didn't get reinstalled)
and seamonkey still worked fine - ie: it doesn't seem to really need Xft2
at all (and from what I read in the last couple of days about font
handling - reading for another reason altogether - I wouldn't expect
it to, Xft2 seems to be old technology, mostly replaced now (in new fancy
apps anyway), and I'm a little surprised that pango refers to it at
all - which it still does, even after drochner's recent change).
