I've posted in the last month or so about strange problems with qt3-libs
and qt3-tools (on Linux) not building. Basically the Makefiles generated
by various project files keep getting blanked out and an infinite loop
happens. This behaviour was inconsistent too.
On Slackware 9.1 I was able to actually get qt3-libs to build (after it
had failed several times) but for some reason qt3-tools wouldn't build
at all. After upgrading to Slackware 10, the build of qt3-libs failed
the same way.
Since my pkgsrc is an NFS-Mounted volume, I decided to try changing
WRKOBJDIR to somewhere on the local disk.... qt3-libs built, first time
without a hitch. qt3-tools is now building.
Can anyone verify there is a problem with pkgsrc-on-NFS and qt3-libs or
perhaps give a counterexample?
I haven't been able to test on NetBSD yet. Also - all other packages
seem to be building ok on the NFS volume.
