Greetings. I'm building a cyrus-imapd 2.3.11 server from ports on FreeBSD 7.0/i386. I'm also using these two University of Athens patches:

The following steps produced the error output pasted below. Thanks in advance for any help in debugging and fixing this.

cd /usr/ports/mail/cyrus-imapd23/

*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/mail/cyrus-imapd23/work/cyrus-imapd-2.3.11/imap.

I emailed the author of the patches, and he replied:

"This is a bit of a known issue. The FreeBSD ports system changes the Makefiles for their own build system, and the autocreate patch has to change the makefiles since the sieve libraries are needed also in other places (because of the autocreate functionality). If you follow the normal patch procedure and you add the autocreate patch in the patches that are in the ports build system, then the autocreate patch will not be applied successfully since there will be conflicts in the makefiles again. (The rules apply also to autosieve if i remember correctly).

Unfortunately i don't have a freeBSD system at hand to see the changed that are needed (which are not backward compatible with the vanilla cyrus distribution), and it is quite hard for us to produce different patches for different operating systems. (that's why we have all the uoa patches against the vanilla cyrus distribution)."

I'm reluctant to build from the cyrus-imapd sources as I don't know enough about possible differences in file locations (and maybe code?) between the two distributions. Ports would be much better for me, provided I can correct the missing library reference.

Again, thanks for any help in debugging this.
