Description holger 2015-01-12 17:37:44 UTC
$ dblatex 
env: python: No such file or directory

dblatex is a script and the shebang invokes python and not python2/python2.7.
The file could probably be patched through:

 python_OLD_CMD=    /usr/bin/env python
 python_CMD=    ${PYTHON_CMD}
 SHEBANG_FILES= bin/dblatex

I am not sure if that is the right way to go.

Due to an issue with the backend FreeBSD Bugzilla database, your original PR and any updates to it since have been lost.  I've recreated the original PR as best as I can, however any attachments and updates you submitted to the PR have been lost.  Please could you resubmit them?

Thanks, and apologies.

Fix Summary and notiy maintainer.
Comment 3 John Marino freebsd_committer 2015-05-17 15:11:09 UTC
The maintainer is gone.  With this PR, that makes 4 consecutive timeouts.
Comment 4 John Marino freebsd_committer 2015-05-17 15:12:13 UTC
I'll reset the port and try to fix this if I can confirm.

  textproc/dblatex: Fix failure to invoke, reset maintainer

  The shebang "env python" won't work.  Normally shebangfix would be used
  to fix this, but dblatex is actually built so we need to use sed in the
  post-install target to adjust it.

  While here, reset the maintainer.  This PR is the fourth consecutive
  timeout.  Also clean up the port.

Comment 6 John Marino freebsd_committer 2015-05-17 16:33:43 UTC
This was surprisingly painful to fix.  shebangfix did not work and it takes a long time to build this port due to tex extraction.  I had to do it many times.

Thank you.
