Description Olivier 2007-05-20 15:10:04 UTC
When using a fresh system installed with NO_RCMDS=yes in /etc/make.conf (or /etc/src.conf for -CURRENT), x11/xorg fails to compile because of x11/xorg-apps which depends on x11/xsm which wants an rsh-like program during configure :

# cd /usr/ports/x11/xorg
# make install clean
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c -o root -g wheel
checking for rsh... no
checking for rcmd... no
checking for remsh... no
configure: error: No rsh like program found
===>  Script "configure" failed unexpectedly.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/x11/xsm.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/x11/xorg-apps.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/x11/xorg.


Since x11/xsm can't be built without RSH, remove the line
xsm:${PORTSDIR}/x11/xsm \
from x11/xorg-apps/Makefile

Or, if you need xsm, (only a temporary workaround, very dirty) :
# touch /usr/local/bin/rsh
# cd /usr/ports/x11/xsm
# make install clean
# rm /usr/local/bin/rsh
# cd /usr/ports/x11/xorg
# make install clean

It would maybe be better for x11/xorg-apps to only install xsm if {rsh,rcmd,remsh} is present, or if NO_RCMDS isn't set.
How-To-Repeat: # echo 'NO_RCMDS=yes' >> /etc/make.conf
# cd /usr/src
# make buildworld
# make installworld
# make delete-old
# cd /usr/ports/x11/xsm
# make

Here is a patch to make x11/xsm compile without rsh and friends. The trick is to define "RSH" to something useful. In debian, RSH=/usr/bin/ssh. But if we do that, x11/xsm will be broken without SSH, SSL or CRYPTO in the base system. I used successfully "RSH=/dev/null" :)

We can just not depend on xsm if rsh is not available so I committed that 
change. Thanks for reporting!
