I'm aware. In this case I should likely just revert this change since its a pretty blatant break. > It also tends to be a lot harder to find these > breakages in code one didn't write.

(kib@ is a pretty good resource for devising ABI shims.) I'll take a look to see what else I broke / changed and either revert or write up a shim.

Understood. My intention in doing them one-by-one was to make it easier to bisect if something goes wrong. -- Eitan Adler Source, Ports, Doc committer Bugmeister, Ports Security teams _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/svn-src-all To unsubscribe, send any mail to "svn-src-all-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
