This port has dependency new port submitted in https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=191877
Please do not submit before it.
Same comment. Explain what the SCCP does, and why it should be part of the ports tree.
In addition, can you provide test logs from poudriere or redports or at least the output from "make check-plist" followed by "make stage-qa" ?
If you choose poudriere, make sure you use either "poudriere testport" or "poudriere bulk -t" in order to enable stage-qa checks, thanks!

fixed issues after make check-plist and make stage-qa
This attachment contains fixed issues reported by 'make check-plist' and 'make stage-qa'. I missed to executed them before.
I want to port OpenBSC (http://openbsc.osmocom.org/trac/) to FreeBSD. OpenBSC is free software project implementing various parts of the GSM network. It can run a full minimal GSM network in a box. I have OpenBSC port files ready but first need to commit its dependencies. Libosmo-sccp is OpenBSC dependency. The Signalling Connection Control Part (SCCP) is a network layer protocol that provides extended routing, flow control, segmentation, connection-orientation, and error correction facilities in Signaling System 7 telecommunications networks. SCCP relies on the services of MTP for basic routing and error detection. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Signalling_Connection_Control_Part)
Okay. There's still a possibility of a missing dependency as the make commands can't test for this (only poudriere can) but let's be optimistic.
.... and I was right:
checking for gcc... cc
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
checking for suffix of executables...
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of object files... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether cc accepts -g... yes
checking for cc option to accept ISO C89... none needed
checking whether cc understands -c and -o together... yes
checking for style of include used by gmake... GNU
checking dependency style of cc... gcc3
checking for ranlib... ranlib
./configure: 3603: Syntax error: word unexpected (expecting ")")
===> Script "configure" failed unexpectedly.
Please report the problem to firstname.lastname@example.org [maintainer] and attach the
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/local/sbin/pkg-static info -g -Ea).

And now the pkg-plist has a warning:

====>> Checking for staging violations... done
I'm all ready to commit this port after my two little fixes (pkgconfig + remove dirrmtry line from pkg-plist), but the pkg description is terrible:
"SCCP Library from Osmocom."
That's shorter than the "short" description.
Well, no, that's not true, that's "SCCP Library".
These descriptions are not helpful and do not describe what the port is or what it does.
Can you provide a real package description and a better "short" description? You can probably use a lot of the text you added in this PR earlier.

Extended port description.
COMMENT= SCCP network layer protocol implementation
yes, much better!
If you have any other PRs in work with less than optimal descriptions, you might want to pre-emptively update those too.
I'll put this in work.

The Signalling Connection Control Part (SCCP) is a network layer
protocol that provides extended routing, flow control, segmentation,
connection-orientation, and error correction facilities in
Signaling System 7 telecommunications networks. SCCP relies on the
services of MTP for basic routing and error detection.
Libosmo-sccp is SCCP protocol implementation for Osmocom projects.
