Dovecot's configure script no longer understands the --disable-ipv6
argument. This results in the following warning during build:
===> Applying FreeBSD patches for dovecot-1.2.10
===> dovecot-1.2.10 depends on shared library: iconv.3 - found
===> Configuring for dovecot-1.2.10
configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --disable-ipv6
The removal of this option was documented in the official
configure: Removed --disable-ipv6 parameter. There's really no point
having it. Originally it was added back when some OSes had broken
IPv6 support, but those OSes should be long gone by now. Also we
still support automatically building without IPv6 support if it's
This is okay -- dovecot's configure script does correctly figure out
if the system supports IPv6 or not.
Change the port Makefile as follows:
1) Remove IPV6 from the OPTIONS list
2) Remove the .if defined(WITHOUT_IPV6) block of code
How-To-Repeat: Build dovecot with IPV6 de-selected from OPTIONS.
