Description Jesper Louis Andersen 2007-12-24 01:00:02 UTC
New update of the lang/mlton port.


* This only accounts for i386. We do have amd64 support for FreeBSD as well, but I need more RAM to be able to test that (mlton EATS RAM, especially when a pointer is 8 bytes... :), I asked Santa for more, so let us see what happens...

* Kill most of the maintainer stuff in the makefile. There are nice tools in ports-mgmt/ to take care of most of those things anyway.

* New Bootstrap image, FreeBSD 7.0 ready. This means we MAY have to bump the version descriptor so its for 7.0 only. I do not know if the image is backwards compatible but I guess not.

* Theres some cruft lying around inside the lib/mlton which could be thinned down. It also generates a spurious warning from portlint. If this is too ugly for your tastes, please say so. I plan on getting the shovel under it and the amd64 release soon.

* Thing doesn't use gettext directly, so get rid of that.

* New pseudo-automatical pkg-plist generated from the hints in the Porters handbook.

* Port survives port test /usr/ports/lang/mlton - if there is anything more to test, please do tell me.

* Port requires quite some memory to compile. I hint it to stay under 680mb of RAM which makes it compile without to much GC pressure, but whole-program-compilation has this as its bane. The amd64 code generator takes at least 1.2Gb of memory for a self compile.

* Patch was first gzipped and then uuencoded to make the HTML send-pr system happy.
Please mail me for further questions.

Now, this is what I forgot:

jlouis@mongers.org and jesper.louis.andersen@gmail.com is the same
person. I just wanted to change the email address to the one I tend to
use. Thanks.
