Add ldconfig to the requirements for dbus to start none

Description Matthias Andree freebsd_committer 2014-12-26 00:19:41 UTC
devel/dbus starts too soon through rcorder. dbus-daemon requires libexpat.so.1, which is installed on my systems, but not available to the run-time linker before ldconfig has run.  This happens on 9.3-amd64 and 10.1-i386.

Please adjust the rc.d headers such that dbus waits for ldconfig to complete; note this may not be trivial and cause circular dependencies.  Finding a proper solution requires more time than I have on my hands right now, so I'm sorry but cannot provide a patch.

This causes all sorts of other trouble down the road, for instance, various avahi services then refuse to start because dbus isn't there.

I am guessing this happened with someone started removing the .la files.

I tried to dig into the history and figure out if it used to be a static binary(/usr/local/bin/dbus-demon), but I too ran out of time and desire to figure this one out.

The patch fixes the problem for me.

Patch + PORTREVISION bump fixed the issue for me. Thanks!

  Make sure we start after ldconfig is run. So we can find stuff in /usr/local.

  I haven't see this myself but it doesn't hurt to do it correctly.
