Description Peter Jeremy 2012-05-16 03:40:01 UTC
	libexttextcat is a fork of libtextcat that provides additional
	capabilities needed by LibreOffice.  Whilst libexttextcat appears
	to provide a superset of libtextcat functionality, it mostly uses
	different file names so libexttextcat is not a drop-in replacement
	for libtextcat.  Unfortunately, both ports install bin/createfp so
	they are marked conflicting.  This makes it impossible to install
	both editors/libreoffice and ports depending on libtextcat (eg

Fix: The following patch optionally adds symlinks from the libexttextcat
	files to their equivalent libtextcat names.  As a side-benefit,
	it also correctly installs the LICENSE file, misc documentation
	(as done by libtextcat) anhd adds support for the "make check"
	target (this latter needs a Makefile patch to remove a dependency
	on bash - mhich should be installed in the files directory).

	The approach of renaming the files was tested by compiling
	editors/openoffice-3.  The resultant executable was able to
	open files, export files and print normally.

	Note that this patch is against libexttextcat-3.2.0_1 as I
	don't currently have access to libexttextcat-3.2.0_2.  As far
	as I can see, the patches should still apply, though with some
How-To-Repeat: 	Try to install both editors/libreoffice and editors/openoffice-3

Comment 2 Peter Jeremy 2012-05-16 03:51:47 UTC
I've just realised that I attached the wrong version of the patch to
Makefile (the one from before I was aware of libexttextcat-3.2.0_2).

I will provide an updated patch once I have libexttextcat-3.2.0_2
(or on request).
