Re: Build failure net/lldpd (NetBSD 9.2-stable amd64)

I built lldpd on a NetBSD 8/amd64 system, without your patch, with

but that file says no pcre is used.

Tree must be a week old. 8-stable amd64 also needs the same patch as my build failed there.

I am building on 9, also and will check that, but the machine is very
slow (2006 mac notebook).

It may be that on some systems, snmp needs pcre, but if lldpd doesn't
itself ask for pcre, then the right fix is to add pcre to the bl3 of
that thing that asks for it.

So: Can you explain where the request for pcre comes from?

The pcre dependency comes from net-snmp (which is why I added the buildlink conditionally on that option being enabled). The same buildlink was added to net-snmp in this commit:

Which is the thing that triggered lldpd into failing to configure.
