Hello, not sure if this is the right list, but when trying to build
some X-related packages, the build fails with a message like this:
===> Overriding tools for openmotif-2.1.30nb3
mk/buildlink3/bsd.buildlink3.mk" line 342: warning: Couldn't read
shell's output for "/usr/sbin/pkg_info -K /var/db/pkg -qp
x11-links-0.24 | /usr/bin/sed -e "s,^[^/]*,,;q""
===> Creating toolchain wrappers for openmotif-2.1.30nb3
Syntax error: expecting "in"
*** Error code 2
It's trying to determine the installation prefix for x11-links-0.24,
and apparently the package doesn't contain one, because pkg_info -qp
I'm on NetBSD/alpha if that matters, the pkgsrc tree is freshly
supped, and pkg_install is at 20050210.
Any solutions, tips, even dirty hacks would be appreciated.
