Best approach for a FreePascal Package
I was curious why we haven't FreePascal 3.0 and Lazarus 1.6 in our
Pkgsrc repo. OpenBSD und FreeBSD have versions already. So i looked into the
Makefile and saw for FPC it requires an older FPC version for building
the compiler. We haven't for a long time no FPC in our repo. Nicely the
FreePascal project provides for some architecture older binaries(for
NetBSD i386/AMD64 in version 2.6.4) to bootstrap to 3.0.
What is the best approach to create a pkgsrc recipt for that problem? I
have a problem that i need to download a specific binary from Sourceforge, which have somewhere linker problems(crosscompiled and
unmaintained) and build with this newer versions of fpc. Also, we
haven't the full control about that code or provided version. The
limitation of some architectures doesn't look like best design and
creates more exceptions for building binaries.
Btw,the suse-fpc package recipt looks broken, but it's only in wip. So this isn't a solution for the problem.
