I've been trying to get applix 5.0 to work and I've been running into some intresting problems. The first one was that current has the getresuid syscall and the gtk12 build detects and uses it. Unfortuatly FreeBSD 3.x and 4.x don't have this syscall so you can't use libgtk12 with old libc's if it's built on current. I was able to build a new one with use of getresuid disabled and that got the main program to load. It appears that the gtk12 port needs to disable this dubious feature or getresuid needs to be MFC'd all the way back to 3.x.
After that I tried using the converters and discovered that the olefilter doesn't work because is uses libc_r.so.3 and we don't have a version of that with __stderrp defined. I don't really know what the fix to this one is since we haven't had a libc_r.so.3 in 3.x for almost two years now. Any ideas? -- Brooks P.S.
