Description Guido Falsi freebsd_committer 2015-05-03 09:27:06 UTC

After the last update lang/ocaml fails to configure with the following error when any compiler option includes a "=":

===>  Configuring for ocaml-4.02.1
[ERROR!]Arguments to this script look like '-prefix /foo/bar', not '-prefix=/foo/bar' (note the '=').

The regexp performing this check in the configure script is really too generic and triggers also for perfectly legitimate compiler options like "-march=xxx".

Attached patch comments out this check. I don't think it's really needed in the port. Creating a correct check allowing the = symbol between quotes looks too difficult for too little advantage.

Can you approve this change?

BTW the update also has another problem. The caml4p parts were removed in this new release, but some other ports did depend on them. I'm creating a port for caml4p from here:


Was this checked before performing the update?
