Description Jason E. Hale 2008-08-29 05:00:02 UTC
In sysutils/apcupsd, a GAPCMON OPTION was added which conflicts with
sysutils/gapcmon.  This is the same program and installs in the same
location.  The sysutils/gapcmon port has been in place before gapcmon was
bundled with apcupsd.


There are several things that can be done:
1. CONFLICTS obviously will not work since gapcmon requires apcupsd.
2. Change the GAPCMON OPTION in sysutils/apcupsd to simply depend on the 
   sysutils/gapcmon port as a RUN_DEPENDS.
3. Remove the GAPCMON OPTION from sysutils/apcupsd.
4. Remove the sysutils/gapcmon port which would still require CONFLICTS.

I am the maintainer of sysutils/gapcmon and I favor option #2 since the separate
gapcmon project is updated more often than the one bundled with apcupsd.  It
would also still give the user the option of installing the GUI.
sysutils/gapcmon does not depend on sysutils/apcupsd, so there wouldn't be a
"chicken-egg" problem.
How-To-Repeat: Install sysutils/gapcmon and sysutils/apcupsd with the GAPCMON OPTION enabled;
they will install conflicting files.

  Modified files:
    sysutils/apcupsd     Makefile 
  - conflict with sysutils/gapcmon when WITH_GAPCMON is on since this installs
  the bundled gapcmon in the same place
  This is a temporary fix as his suggestion from the PR to depend on
  sysutils/gapcmon is good but need further tests.
