Package binaries for NetBSD/powerpc pkgsrc-2017Q2
I've now completed a build cycle for pkgsrc-2017Q2 for powerpc on
NetBSD/macppc 6.1, 7.1 and 8.0_BETA (where I've cheated and
marked it as 8.0 even though it's built with the beta).
The total size and number of packages built is as follows:
6.1 16GB 14295 packages
7.1 23GB 16691 packages (17401 in dir, maybe some multiple versions)
8.0 24GB 16759 packages
Build reports for all of these have been sent to pkgsrc-bulk.
Some notable absences:
* node.js doesn't want to build, and IBM who maintains the ppc
code in Google's v8 (which is part of node.js) only cares for
ppc64. There's probably not much we can do here; maintaining
a "separate" port will be expensive in terms of resources.
* None of the openjdk versions have a working bootstrap, so
packages wanting "proper Java" are not built either. Perhaps
most notable here is LibreOffice. I may look closer at this,
but no promises.
* In the mozilla family, it looks like none of the various
firefox versions want to build (there's a package file for the
ancient firefox36 on 8.0, but it doesn't actually contain an
executable for firefox). Basically the same problem applies
to thunderbird and seamonkey.
