removal of USE_AUTOTOOLS broke build of security/openconnect
Monday, July 7 2014
This morning ran into an update to security/openconnect removed USE_AUTOTOOLS, which broke the build for me.
Adding some of what was removed:
was enought to get the build to work again.
The problem as it turned out was that a patch was being applied to Makefile.am trigger the need for autotools, and applying
the patch to Makefile.in makes USE_AUTOTOOLS unnecessary.
Someday I’ll get around to running it. I had a working configuration under Ubuntu, but the configuration is untested on
FreeBSD. The main question is whether my FreeBSD installation will cope with the certificates involved.
I also wonder if all of the sysutils/vpnc-scripts work under FreeBSD, the port only patches one of the three scripts (the
most common one… where I’m interested in using one of the other ones.) Someday when I have my time machine, I might
get around to it.
