Re: pkgin fails to build with pkgsrc current


Thank you for responding. Yes I did make clean clean-depends in both pkgtools/pkgin and net/libfetch.

I did "make install" from /usr/pkgsrc/net/libfetch, and it failed. I do have a "working", albeit a little bloated /etc/mk.conf file that i copied from the default directory. I did remove all the stuff that is not needed per the documentation (gasp! I read the docs!).

I did get libfetch to compile by removing this line from the PLIST file:

> man/cat3/fetch.0

BUT, now pkgin fails:

Still hunting.

So pkgin needs libfetch, and it basically invokes the "build libfetch"
subroutine.  For debugging, I would try to figure out one thing at a

General advice is to remove all work directories before retrying.  stale
work dirs cause vast amounts of trouble.

then, I'd try to 'make package' in libfetch, and save the output, and
then go looking into that and the error.

In my case, I see fetch.0 in the PLIST but it is not in .destdir/ but
that is ok -- there are different rules on different systems about
whether man pages are source or bin, and I don't follow how that
interacts with PLIST.

Do you have an /etc/mk.conf file or one in /usr/pkgsrc/etc/mk.conf, and
what is in it?

90% of my problems are due to ignorance, the other 10% is because I just don't know any better.
