Description Scott Lipcon 2004-04-16 14:40:18 UTC
make describe in /usr/ports/audio/jack fails, causing index build to fail.

Fix: 

Older versions of make are getting confused with the number/string conversion of the OSVERSIONS - it sees "500000)" as a string and can't use >.  If you put a space after the version numbers in the comparison on line 34 the old make can tell that 500000 and 502102 are numbers not strings and make describe works fine.
How-To-Repeat: mercea# cd /usr/ports/audio/jack/
mercea# make describe
"Makefile", line 34: warning: String comparison operator should be either == or !=
"Makefile", line 34: Malformed conditional ((${OSVERSION} > 500000) && (${OSVERSION} < 502102))
"Makefile", line 34: Missing dependency operator
"Makefile", line 36: if-less endif
"Makefile", line 36: Need an operator
make: fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue
