Description Kevin K. Han 2013-06-19 19:00:03 UTC
I've tried a few times and unable to install Cherokee on FreeBSD 9.1. Here's is the report:

I created a fresh new jail. Did a "portsnap fetch" and then "portsnap extract". And then tried to install it usig "make install clean". Got the following error:


checking size of sig_atomic_t... configure: error: in `/usr/ports/www/cherokee/work/cherokee-1.2.101':
configure: error: cannot compute sizeof (sig_atomic_t)
See `config.log' for more details
===>  Script "configure" failed unexpectedly.
Please report the problem to c.petrik.sosa@gmail.com [maintainer] and attach
the "/usr/ports/www/cherokee/work/cherokee-1.2.101/config.log" including the
output of the failure of your make command. Also, it might be a good idea to
provide an overview of all packages installed on your system (e.g. a
/usr/sbin/pkg_info -Ea).
*** [do-configure] Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/www/cherokee.
*** [install] Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/www/cherokee.
root@cherokee:/usr/ports/www/cherokee #


Attached is the config.log


The pkg_info is AFTER the installation was halted:

# pkg_info
dialog4ports-0.1.5  Console Interface to configure ports
gettext-  GNU gettext package
gmake-3.82_1        GNU version of 'make' utility
libiconv-1.14_1     A character set conversion library
libtool-2.4.2       Generic shared library support script
pcre-8.33           Perl Compatible Regular Expressions library
pkgconf-0.9.2_1     Utility to help to configure compiler and linker flags
python27-2.7.5_1    Interpreted object-oriented programming language


Could this problem be fixed soon?

Fix: Patch attached with submission follows:
How-To-Repeat: I'd delete the jail, re-create and repeat the process. Each time I try to change to change the options during the make config. I still get exactly the same problem.

New Revision: 339271
URL: http://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/ports/339271

  - Unbreak.
    Remove a useless check for sig_atomic_t that never worked because
    configure.ac calls AC_CHECK_SIZEOF without telling it to include signal.h
    Submitted upstream as https://github.com/cherokee/webserver/pull/1100
  - Use the new LIB_DEPENDS syntax.
