Description Stephen Montgomery-Smith freebsd_committer 2011-07-25 20:10:10 UTC
math/taucs uses ftime, which is part of libcompat, and on FreeBSD 8.2 is available only as a static library.  This can cause problems.

Fix: Use gettimeofday instead of ftime.
Update ports so that cad/gmsh is at version 2.5.0.  (I only committed this a few minutes ago.)

cd /usr/ports/cad/gmsh

Comment 2 Stephen Montgomery-Smith 2011-07-25 21:16:33 UTC
I just discovered that my patch as a slight bug, in that if one makes 
the port before deinstalling it, it will not build.  This is because the 
makefile first looks for libtaucs in /usr/local/lib before looking in 

This patch fixes this bug.  I also enclose a diff between the two 
patches so that you can see exactly where they differ.  I admit that 
patch is a bit of a kludge.

  fix library search paths and switch from the legacy ftime() to
  gettimeofday() in order to solve problems with the construction of
  shared libraries [1] ; configure only once; build only those
  (dynamically-linked) executables that will be installed; set
  USE_LDCONFIG; remove an unnecessary patch; don't mix toolchains; make
  flags more uniform and remove obsolete flags; add test targets
