mail/dovecot2 doesn't detect libstemmer or exttextcat

Sunday, July 21 2013

Wanting to try out the FTS plugin in dovecot2, found that it was failing to find libstemmer/exttextcat libraries.

Found that textproc/libexttextcat has incremented its library name, so configure has trouble finding it.

libextextcat has gone from:

libextextcat.so(.*) -> libextextcat-1.0.so(.*) -> libextextcat-2.0.so(.*)

As for libstemmer, this is present in lib-clucene-contribs-lib.so from textproc/clucene, so patched the configure & code to look for it from there.
