Hi there! How do I safely handle automake/autoconf versions built from ports?? Recently, some of my port builds (x11/kde3 specifically) failed because automake and autoconf has been MOVED. Do I absolutely have to wait for the maintainers to update the ports' Makefiles?
There are references to USE_AUTOCONF_VER=* and USE_AUTOMAKE_VER=*, but unless I am mistaken, these are mainly useful for port maintainers only. Can I override them safely, say .. modifying the Makefiles myself? A "pkg_info -R autoconf\*" lists many versions of autoconf in my system. Can I simply delete the unused ones? Same goes for "pkg_info -R automake\*" --- output follows: [EMAIL PROTECTED]: ports] # pkg_info -R autoconf\* Information for autoconf-2.53_1: Information for autoconf-2.57_1: Required by: automake-1.7.9_1 kde-3.2.3 kdevelop-3.0.4 [EMAIL PROTECTED]: ports] # pkg_info -R automake\* Information for automake-1.5,1: Information for automake-1.7.9_1: Required by: kde-3.2.3 kdevelop-3.0.4 Information for automake14-1.4.5_9: -- ------------------- aeefyu ------------------- _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
