I'm trying to upgrade pkgsrc on my laptop which is running 1.4.3.
I haven't upgraded the laptop because it only had 8 MB of RAM and could
not reliably run the install, not to mention that it took days to
compile a stripped down kernel. I now have 20 MB of RAM, the maximum
for my laptop, so I may try again some time.
Anyways, I downloaded a current pkgsrc tarball, unpacked it, went
to /usr/pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_install, and tried to make install. This
bombed miserably due to the use of makefile features not supported by
older versions of make. So, I went to /usr/pkgsrc/bootstrap and tried
./bootstrap. This bombed with:
/tmp/cczolCwz.s: Assembler messages:
/tmp/cczolCwz.s:36: Fatal error: Symbol ___unvis13 already defined.
So, being the clever sort, I grabbed the source for make from -current,
rebuilt make, and installed it. Then I tried pkg_install again and it
bombed with the same error. Does anybody have any clues? I've placed
a complete log at http://victoria.tc.ca/~jnemeth/143pkginstall .
