This email covers two topics:
1) Should python binding buildlink3.mk files include buildlink3.mk files
for non-python headers/libraries?
2) Should packages that depend on renamed packages have their versions
Building databases/gramps2 is failing for me:
===> Creating toolchain wrappers for gramps-2.2.9
ERROR: libglade is not installed; can't buildlink files.
*** Error code 1
I have installed:
py24-gtk2-2.8.6 (August 2006)
libglade2-2.5.1nb4 (April 2006)
(Yes, I know these are very old but pkgsrc should be able to handle this.)
Now I see the problem:
libglade2 does not exist anymore since 2007/09/21 (I think).
gramps doesn't depend on libglade directly. It uses py24-gtk2
which is good enough.
I think that a python script that uses py24-gtk2 would not use the
libglade headers or libraries directly.
So why does a buildlink3.mk file for Python bindings for GTK+2 also include
libglade's buildlink3.mk file?
Is this okay?

As for the issue with the renaming. I think that all packages
depending on the original name should be bumped. What do you think?
