System: NetBSD manticore.sylvanfalls.net 1.5.2 NetBSD 1.5.2 (MANTICORE) #1: Fri Dec 7 19:30:27 EST 2001 firstname.lastname@example.org:/lfs1/src.nb152/sys/arch/i386/compile/MANTICORE i386
After updating my pkgsrc tree (12/16/01) and doing a 'make clean'
in the a2ps directory, two bogons appear when I issue the
'make' command. Configuration appears to work ok, but then:
1) As a last message, configure reports that it believes I
use A4 paper, despite PAPERSIZE being set to Letter in
both /etc/mk.conf and /usr/pkgsrc/mk/bsd.pkg.defaults.mk
This even occurs when I use an '=' operator rather than '=?'
to set PAPERSIZE in both files.
2) Just after building begins, there is a call to sed which
has a quoted script, but no input file, hanging the build:
===> build-message [a2ps-22.214.171.124] ===> Building for a2ps-126.96.36.199
Making all in auxdir
Making all in m4
rm -f Makefile.am Makefile.amt
sed -n '1,/^##m4-files-begin/p' > Makefile.amt
This persists across 'make clean' commands. Happens every time,
whether at console or in GUI, in bash or tcsh, with makefile
shell set to /bin/sh or /usr/pkg/bin/bash (as suggested in the
most closely related problem on the a2ps Known Bugs site).
Not known (tried messing with it a bit but to no avail).
The a2ps site doesn't have the problem listed on their Known
