Description Ian Lepore freebsd_committer 2015-11-04 22:49:59 UTC
Doing a "make deinstall-depends" for any port de-installs pkg(8) first, then everything else it tries to do fails (and, it leaves you without pkg).

I'm not in a big hurry for a fix for this, it's just something I stumbled across and wanted to record it before I forget.

Doesn't pkg autoremove does what you want ?
Comment 2 Ian Lepore freebsd_committer 2016-04-13 14:52:16 UTC
I wasn't looking for a workaround, I was reporting a bug in the existing code, which needs to be fixed somehow.  Are you proposing that the fix for this bug is to reimplement the deinstall-depends target by having it invoke pkg autoremove?
Comment 3 Mathieu Arnold freebsd_committer 2016-04-13 14:55:46 UTC
Not at all, but an infrastructure PR without a patch is not likely to be fixed, ever.  I was just trying to tell you how to go around it.

  Fix make deinstall-depends with pkg.

  drop pkg itself from the list of deinstall-depends in order
  to keep pkg around to be able to deinstall more ports.
