Comment 3 Pascal G. Hofstee 2006-02-14 23:50:27 UTC
This commit actually breaks the dbus port.

By setting localstatedir to /var .. the port is trying to "mkdir
/var/run/dbus"  for its localstatedir during the install phase. However
/var/run/dbus is at the same time used as the name for the dbus-socket.

This is an obvious naming conflict that breaks a portupgrade (when the
dbus-socket already exists), or if the socket does not exist during
installation, causes dbus to be unable to start because the new
/var/run/dbus/ localstatedir triggers dbus launch to think it's already
running because its "socket" already exists.

The proper solution is likely to resolve this path-conflict by either
renaming the dbus-socket .. or putting it Inside the new localstatedir.
