The changes to autoconf'ed ports, regarding the LATE_CONFIGURE_ARGS broken
this port. By rolling our own do-configure target and passing the right
combination of --build and --host, this port still builds and works fine.
Port maintainer (shaun@FreeBSD.org) is cc'd.
Generated with FreeBSD Port Tools 0.77
Over to maintainer (via the GNATS Auto Assign Tool)
I will still claim that a version of GCC that is ten years old and
that neither the maintainer nor anyone else has bothered fixing for
nine months is not worth keeping.
In any case, before proceeding please have a look at
which is affecting _real_ users and best addressed by removing the
obsolete lang/gcc295 port. By keeping the useless lang/gcc295 port
we will make the situation more tricky and maintain those complications
with later lang/gcc ports.
thanks for sharing your concern, as de-facto gcc-ports maintainer your
input is very welcomed.
However, I fail to see how gcc295 can be blamed for either ccache's
behaviour (which I'm ignorant to) or gcc43's.
In any case, why don't we
a) commit the fix
b) set DEPRECATED
c) ship 8.0 and possibly 7.3 with working gcc295 packages
d) yank it from the tree
I don't want to support gcc295 any longer than that, but at least the
fix should make it in before sending gcc295 to the attic.
Thanks for your consideration,

Ok, since I seem to be in the minority in wanting to keep the port, and
since it is causing headaches for people, we'll go for this course of
action. Thanks again for your work and input, Ulrich.
