Description Mikhail T. 2014-11-30 17:59:54 UTC
Created attachment 150036 [details]

It appears, the requirement was added, because the author's configure uses pkg-config to check the local OpenSSL distribution.

That's not a good enough reason to drag a sizable dependency -- the base OpenSSL is perfectly sufficient.

The attached patch modifies upstream's configure.ac to NOT use pkg-config on openssl and removes the requirement from the port's own Makefile.

It's will be better if efl use openssl from base instead from port, but attached patch simply don't work.

Output from make configure:

configure: Start Ecore_Con checks
checking for ECORE_CON... no
configure: error: Package requirements ( ) were not met:

Please specify at least one package name on the command line.

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables ECORE_CON_CFLAGS
and ECORE_CON_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

Comment 4 Grzegorz Blach freebsd_committer 2014-12-28 19:10:54 UTC
I found a way how to use openssl from base on 10.0 or higher. On older FreeBSD releases openssl is too old to work with efl.
