It's essentially just a matter of changing the version, the download
URL and the pkg-revision. I have archived the changed files, and placed
I can get it to build and install, with the supplied changes, if I
manually run "mkdir /usr/pkg/include/pqxx" before "make install".
However, there are some caveats:
The "configure" stage gives:
checking for strerror_r... no
No definition of strerror_r, the thread-safe version of strerror(), was
your <cstring> header.
This may be because your implementation strerror() is threadsafe, in
there is nothing to worry about.
config.status: executing configitems commands
usage: mktemp [-d] [-q] [-t prefix] [-u] [template ...]
Checking for usable grep -F or equivalent...
This version of grep seems to be broken: searching for literal whole-word
patterns stops when one of the patterns is found, but does not end in a word
boundary. This problem is known to have happened with some 2.5.1
These warnings/errors seem to be mostly cosmetic, though. :-)
But the "make install" problem is worse. I'm not sure what the
problem stems from. I'm just guessing, but it seems like
/usr/pkg/include is passed to config/install-sh, but
/usr/pkg/include/pqxx is not. So all the following calls to install the
header files fail.
I assume I should be telling some Makefile.am that the pqxx directory
should be created. Is that the proper solution? If so, how would I go
about doing that?
Oh, also.. How does one tell pkgsrc to ignore a set of patches? I
simply removed them from the distfile, but that gives warnings during
the patch phase. Should the patch files simply be removed from the package?
