Have you tested dependant port ? in particular the fact lib/libappstream-builder.so disappear isn't breaking anything ?

(In reply to Baptiste Daroussin from comment #1)

I don't know, if it breaks something. I just noticed it used by some GNOME ports in meson-post-install.py script (through appstream-util utility) in order to valid AppStream metadata file.

By default 'builder' option is enabled [1], and in Makefile is not disabled, so perhaps something is missing.

This blocks the update of mail/geary to modern versions (bug 238373) which require 0.7.10 at least.

re: the builder library — https://github.com/hughsie/appstream-glib/pull/287 it is no longer installed because "Nothing uses it, and it's not API or ABI stable."
