It works if you don't use objprelink, and then change a bunch of files to include arpa/inet.h I spent some time fixing this yesterday... Here are my notes: #include <arpa/inet.h> in kdelibs-2.2.2: kdecore/kextsock.cpp kio/ftp/ftp.cc kio/tcpslavebase.cpp arts/mcop/tcpconnection.cc qt2.3.1: src/kernel/qfont_x11.cpp src/kernel/qpainter_x11.cpp src/network/qdns.cpp src/network/qsocketdevice_unix.cpp also "uic" gets a weird dependency on "libclms.so_edata", so you need to run ln -s /usr/local/lib/liblcms.so.1 /usr/local/lib/liblcms.so_edata && ldconfig -R kdenetwork-2.2.2: kit/kitsocket.cpp kmail/kmacctimap.cpp kmail/kmacctexppop.cpp kmail/accountdialog.cpp ktalkd/ktalkd/machines/forwmach.cpp ktalkd/ktalkd/machines/talkconn.cpp ktalkd/ktalkd/print.cpp ktalkd/ktalkd/process.cpp ktalkd/ktalkd/table.cpp to make kdemultimedia-2.2.2 compile, don't use the FreeBSD-specific byteswapping functions defined in kmidi/config.h, instead use the generic ones (which should have been used in the first place anyway, imo) remove the "ifdef #FreeBSD"-blah near XCHG_(LONG|SHORT) I installed all those ports using make NO_DEPENDS=yes install since I'm too lazy to figure out where the objprelink dep is defined. > I think that last sentence is a huge run on and I by no means am > trying to complain, just wondering if anyone thinks its important to > make it on this snapshot. I agree... -CURRENT was fine until the new binutils came into the tree. First the libpng, then the KDE problems. I think we should wait a while and fix ports using ntohl and friends (since someone seem to have decided that netinet/in.h shouldn't define it or something) and make KDE build again before making a "developer preview", but that's just my opinion. // Joel Wilsson To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
