Description Alex S 2020-12-08 17:46:47 UTC
First, it's broken on CURRENT. Second, apparently it's unmaintained and it was dropped from most Linux distributions years ago. (Debian is a notable exception: https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=48878.) I'll note here that only emulators/wine-devel and emulators/wine-proton depend on sysutils/prelink, emulators/wine doesn't.
Comment 1 Gerald Pfeifer 2020-12-08 18:16:41 UTC
I plan on removing the prelink dependency from wine-devel around next week end, not the least since as you point out emulators/wine never has used this. (There is an explicit note in a commit in 2016.) Damjan, if you see this as a mistake, please advise. If you guys want to deprecate the prelink port or make an update, I can commit this on your behalf.

This brings this wine-devel port and the wine port closer in sync, and prelink is broken on -CURRENT among others. PR: 251686 Changes: head/emulators/wine-devel/Makefile
Comment 3 Gleb Popov 2020-12-23 09:44:09 UTC
Should this be closed now?
Comment 4 Alex S 2020-12-23 09:52:04 UTC
(In reply to Gleb Popov from comment #3) Not until sysutils/prelink either fixed or dead. Preferably latter. Upstream Wine is moving towards compiling as many components as possible into PE executables, so even if prelink still does something it will be useless very soon (see bug 237213).
