Description tedm 2009-12-24 01:10:05 UTC
Building arj-3.10.22.tar.gz. in /usr/ports/archivers/arj  spews several
errors like:

TODAY v 1.22  [29/10/2000]  Not a part of any binary package!
(this is repeated multiple times during the build)

fardata.c: In function 'vcprintf':
fardata.c:665: warning: 'short int' is promoted to 'int' when passed through '...'
fardata.c:665: warning: (so you should pass 'int' not 'short int' to 'va_arg')
fardata.c:665: note: if this code is reached, the program will abort
fardata.c:667: warning: 'short unsigned int' is promoted to 'int' when passed through '...'
fardata.c:667: note: if this code is reached, the program will abort

ARJDATA: unknown tag <@!_">
ARJDATA: unknown tag <@: display program option\np: match with Pathname       !: execute command option\n">
