configure, running under the ports system, returns this:
checking host system type... i386-unknown-kfreebsd4.9-gnu <-- what's that all about?
. . . . .
checking dynamic linker characteristics... no
checking if libtool supports shared libraries... no
checking whether to build shared libraries... no
checking whether to build static libraries... yes
. . . .
Cleaning out the work directory, doing a make deinstall in libtool13 gives me this more reasonable outcome.
checking host system type... i386-unknown-freebsd4.9 . . . . checking if libtool supports shared libraries... yes
The acid test is to see if "make package" will work since it seems to check the created files against a list that "make install" doesn't seem to do.
I just did a portinstall rpm (where I was stuck with popt being broken) and it installed just fine. It did however kick back the same warning I have seen previously that libtool13 is deprecated and libtool15 is preferred.
There is no warning about the popt port in UPDATING. -- Paul Beard <www.paulbeard.org/> paulbeard [at] mac.com
