1) I set X11_TYPE to modular and building new x11/libXrender failed with:
===> Creating toolchain wrappers for libXrender-0.9.2
Syntax error: word unexpected (expecting ")")
*** Error code 2
I saw that X11BASE was not defined. I set it to /usr/pkg and that error
Previously I was using in bsd.prefs.mk:
+.if defined(X11_TYPE) && !empty(X11_TYPE:Mmodular-xorg)
Any plan to do that for "modular"?
2) Also, I see that some packages do not work with "modular" until they
are updated. For my modular-xorg I made x11.buildlink3.mk work with that
and just suck in my entire modular-xorg metapackage. That worked great for
many packages for me.
Any plan to do something like that? Or will we just update one package at
a time? (I am asking because I have updates for wm/jwm and editors/lyx-qt
3) Also I noticed that libXpm and xpm are in different categories and
libXft and Xft2 are in different categories? Was that an oversite -- or
will they be moved to graphics and fonts respectively?
Thanks again for your work on this. I've been using most of these modular
components using pkgsrc build system for over a couple years now and so it
is good to see they are finally becoming part of official pkgsrc.
