System: NetBSD jade.coe.psu.ac.th 5.1_STABLE NetBSD 5.1_STABLE
(JADE-1.12-20120130) #27: Tue Jan 31 05:20:31 ICT 2012
fonts/harfbuzz seems (after some update within the past couple of
months) to require a version of graphics/freetype2 that is newer
than the version that is (was) shipped with NetBSD 5.0 native X11.
The build system is not detecting that, and the build fails.
I use pkg_comp with NetBSD 5.0 release sets installed, with libkver
to simulate pure 5.0 (the build system, as shown above, is actually
something beyond 5.1) and use native X11 from the NetBSD 5.0 release
In that environment, attempting to build fonts/harfbuzz results in...
hb-ft.cc:34:10: error: #include expects "FILENAME" or <FILENAME>
hb-ft.cc: In function 'hb_position_t hb_ft_get_glyph_h_advance(hb_font_t*, void*
, hb_codepoint_t, void*)':
hb-ft.cc:102: error: 'FT_Get_Advance' was not declared in this scope
hb-ft.cc: In function 'hb_position_t hb_ft_get_glyph_v_advance(hb_font_t*, void*
, hb_codepoint_t, void*)':
hb-ft.cc:118: error: 'FT_Get_Advance' was not declared in this scope
gmake: *** [libharfbuzz_la-hb-ft.lo] Error 1
Line 34 of hb-ft.cc is
and so, obviously, FT_ADVANCES_H is not being defined, the #include
fails, and everything that's supposed to be defined by that include
file is missing (leading to the errors on lines 102 and 118).
Nowhere (in the sandbox system) could I find any references to
FT_ADVANCES_H leading me to conclude that the version of freetype2
installed there does not have that include file (or at least doesn't
define a symbol with which to reference it).
My workaround for this, which allowed be to build fonts/harfbuzz
(which is needed for pango, which in turn is needed for lots & lots)
was to attempt to set
(as 2.4.11 seems to be the current version, not because that
version is the lowest one that is actually needed).
That changed nothing, the build system was still happy to use the
builtin version of freetype2 instead of the pkgsrc version.
Manually installing freetype2 in the sandbox changed nothing (which
is as it should be, pkgsrc is supposed to ignore packages that just
happen to be installed but are not specifically requested.)
So, and I am fairly sure this is not the correct solution (so I am
not including a patch) I added
to harfbuzz's pkgsrc Makefile. That did what it was intended to do.
=> Full dependency freetype2>=2.4.7nb2: found freetype2-2.4.11
===> Overriding tools for harfbuzz-0.9.12
===> Extracting for harfbuzz-0.9.12
===> Patching for harfbuzz-0.9.12
=> Applying pkgsrc patches for harfbuzz-0.9.12
===> Creating toolchain wrappers for harfbuzz-0.9.12
ERROR: fontconfig>=2.4.2 fontconfig>=2.1nb2 is not installed; can't buildlink
*** Error code 1
which was the first time (in this current build attempt anyway) that
harfbuzz had picked pkgsrc's freetype2 as a dependency.
That something required fontconfig because of this, but fontconfig
didn't get auto-installed is a problem I think ... it should either
be a dependency of freetype2, and been installed when pkgsrc added
that one (from a pre-built binary package) or it should be included
as a dependency of harfbuzz (directly, or indirectly via some
I installed it manyally - just...
pkg_comp:5.conf# pkg_add /p/packages/All/fontconfig-2.10.2.tgz
After that, the build of harfbuzz (0.9.12) succeeded, its binary
package built with no further problems, or so it seemed. Unfortunately
attempting to build devel/pango resulted in ...
reference to `FT_Get_Advance'
gmake: *** [pango-querymodules] Error 1
gmake: Leaving directory
gmake: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
This seems to be because the buildlink for pango managed to
link to libfreetype.so.6.3.17 in the .buildlink/lib directory
(which is the version in X11R7/lib) rather than libfreetype.so.6.10.0
(which did get installed in /usr/pkg/lib - and this is building
in a new, clean, sandbox, so that install of freetype2 happened as
a dependency of something in devel/pango - it just wasn't used).
Adding the line
to devel/pango's pkgsrc Makefile fixed that, but this cannot be the
right way, and almost certainly means that every package that uses
pango is going to need a similar modification (or I would need to
put that in mk.conf and I am fairly sure that is not the right way.)
(I am yet to attempt to build any of the packages that need pango.)
Could someone who understands buildlink3 and the use of the builtin
versions of packages that are available in the release sets, and
pkgsrc (with usually newer versions in pkgsrc) take a look at
fonts/harfbuzz, and implement the correct magic to make it build
correctly (with all the correct dependencies) on NetBSD 5.0 ??
No correct fix known (yet.)
