Re: Strange errors

It would appear that something in the pkgsrc infrastructure now needs to use

Or am I misunderstanding the error messages?

Yes. automake itself wants autoconf (and thus m4) and perl.

I guess you have leftover work directories?

Ah, yes! I had explicitly done a 'make cleandir' in libuv directory, but not in the other directories (for the dependencies).

OK, that's solved. Now I will get back to figuring out why lang/rust doesn't want to build.

Thanks, wiz!
