Sigh.... Why do you think I opened this PR? I personally couldn't care
less if this gets fixed in pkgsrc, my solution is just a hash sign at
the right place.
But I was under the impression, that pkgsrc tries to provide the maximum
number of working packages to as many supported platforms as possible.
And why should this IMvHO get fixed in pkgsrc? Because this is not TeX
Live's business. Neither do they support Sparc as a plattform, nor do
they have to consider the building of xindy and hence clisp, because it
is out of their scope. But in the pkgsrc world, at the moment a whole
bunch of vital LaTeX packages cannot get installed (well, at least not
with the intended ease), because one dependency of a meta-package is not
available for all the plattforms pkgsrc claims to support. So I do
firmly believe that the right solution is that pkgsrc deviates from
upstream here and comes to a different conclusion what belongs into this
I know that I and my PRs are usually a PITA for the pkgsrc maintainers.
Nevertheless, I would expect better than being told off and getting the
door slammed in the face with less than five minutes of consideration.
