Hi, Had another search of the archives and found someone having a similar problem making gtk12. http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/htdig/freebsd-questions/2004-September/0581 90.html
Saw an answer that the issue was running the make in X. So, I switched to a console and tried to install the port... bingo... no problem. Switch back to X and try in aterm or xterm, still same "config.guess not found" error. Bizarre bug.. but at least there's a workaround for now. Don't do any "make" functions in X. Phil. PS: This bug was also affecting my ability to make a new kernel. > -----Original Message----- > From: Philip Payne [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] > Sent: 21 September 2004 23:16 > To: Lowell Gilbert > Cc: FreeBSD Questions (E-mail) > Subject: RE: Portinstall problem (config.guess not found) > > > <Snipped the rest of the debug> > > cp: /usr/ports/devel/gmake/work/make-3.80/config > > > /usr/ports/devel/gmake/work/make-3.80/config/config.guess: > > No such file > > > or directory > > > *** Error code 1 > > > > > > Stop in /usr/ports/devel/gmake. > > > *** Error code 1 > > > > > > Stop in /usr/ports/lang/ezm3. > > > *** Error code 1 > > > > > > Stop in /usr/ports/net/cvsup-without-gui. > > > > What is in your /etc/make.conf? > > > > Nothing special: > > > cat /etc/make.conf > # -- use.perl generated deltas -- # > # Created: Tue Sep 21 12:41:08 2004 > # Setting to use base perl from ports: > PERL_VER=5.8.5 > PERL_VERSION=5.8.5 > PERL_ARCH=mach > NOPERL=yo > NO_PERL=yo > NO_PERL_WRAPPER=yo > > Cheers, > Phil. > _______________________________________________ > [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to > "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" > _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
