When trying to build gimp-print-lib from a current (as of a couple of days
ago) pkgsrc on MacOS X 10.1.5 (darwin5.5), the build step failed claiming
there was no rule to make target 'all:'.
Sure enough, the Makefile was a zero-length file. Prior to this, the
configuration step emitted line after line of the form:
sed: 46: contest.s1: Unescaped newline in substitution
or something similar. It was tricky to track down, since config.status
and config.status.override cleanup after themselves even if errors occur.
Eventually I found the following in:
config.status.overridden: unmodified: line 96 of 715
Somehow, and previous configuration/substitution/patch step didn't
complete the edit of the "@MAKEINFO@" item. I manually edited
config.status.overridden to produce:
and then manually executed ./config.status from the source directory and
it seems to have worked fine. Backing up to the package root, 'bmake
install' ran without incident.
print/gimp-print exhibited the exact same problems as print/gimp-print-lib.
and the same corrective actions allowed it to configure, build and install.
I have only observed this on MacOS 10.1.5. MacOS 10.2.8 Jaguar did not
encounter any problems building all the dependencies leading to a fully
operational installation of GIMP.
Perhaps a fix can be implemented so machines restricted to older versions
of MacOS X can build without incident?
Thanks for your attention.
