Why is this needed? The point of this is to standardise across
various OS, and shouldn't need to match the uname arch.

I've just run "bootstrap" without changing anything, followed by a
"bmake install".

It fails with:

===> Building binary package for digest-20190127
=> Creating binary package /usr/pkgsrc/packages/All/digest-20190127.tgz
malloc() warning: unknown char in MALLOC_OPTIONS

On OpenBSD 6.7

# arch -s

# uname -m

# uname -p

# sysctl hw.machine

I started using pkgsrc on OpenBSD in July, so I don't know whether
it worked previously; but the arch was definitely "am64" on previous
versions too.

Did you add "--abi " to ./bootstrap? Otherwise it doesn't make sense,
because ./bootstrap should pick up:

         machine_arch=`arch -s`

oc@OpenBSD:~$ arch -s

The above output was after running "./bootstrap" without setting any option.

"arch -s" is the problem. It outputs "amd64" and it's transformed by
"bootstrap" into "x86_64" by "amd64/*) abi=64  machine_arch=x86_64
;;", and you end up with "package `digest-20190127' was built for a
platform: pkg_add: OpenBSD/amd64 6.7 (pkg) vs. OpenBSD/x86_64 6.7
(this host)".

I cannot reproduce this issue on OpenBSD 6.6, I haven't got a 6.7 host to try it on.

oc@OpenBSD:~/cvs/pkgsrc$ uname -a
OpenBSD OpenBSD 6.6 GENERIC.MP#3 amd64
oc@OpenBSD:~/cvs/pkgsrc$ cd bootstrap
oc@OpenBSD:~/cvs/pkgsrc/bootstrap$ doas ./bootstrap



Please remember to add /usr/pkg/bin to your PATH environment variable
and /usr/pkg/man to your MANPATH environment variable, if necessary.

An example mk.conf file with the settings you provided to "bootstrap"
has been created for you. It can be found in:


You can find extensive documentation of the NetBSD Packages Collection
in /home/oc/cvs/pkgsrc/doc/pkgsrc.txt.

Thank you for using pkgsrc!
