Description Gerald Pfeifer freebsd_committer 2015-11-09 10:21:30 UTC
We are working to move the default version of GCC in ports (lang/gcc)
from GCC 4.8 to GCC 4.9.

Sadly this port is one of a few that blocks this update, cf. http://package22.nyi.freebsd.org/data/101i386-default-PR196712/2015-10-27_08h38m03s/logs/errors/freeocl-0.3.6_6.log
Comment 1 O. Hartmann 2015-11-19 05:36:41 UTC
Sorry for the late answer. I have little time recently. I will look into this as soon as possible, but my C++ knowledge is very limited.

FreeOCL is a software package that does not receive updates anymore from upstream - as far as I can say from a distant perspective and viewpoint. The focus is more on POCL, for which I proposed also a port, Aeons ago.
Comment 2 Raphael Kubo da Costa freebsd_committer 2016-03-05 23:39:56 UTC
This upstream patch fixes this specific build issue, I think:

There are many other commits that went in that improve portability, but they're fairly big. Do you think it makes sense to keep this port around for long?

Sorry, I'm a bit confused and have not focused much on this port.

I will check this, soon. Since I got a bit closer to poudriere and its value for development, I'll check this and it would be nice if I could get some hints how to setup the build environment in poudriere to use another compiler than the base's LLVM/CLANG to checkout what is going wrong.

I think this port should be retired in favour of devel/pocl. POCL is actively developed, FreeOCL seems not.

  Also mark DEPRECATED due to this being "dead" and having an actively
  maintainer replacement with lang/pocl.

  Pull in EXPIRATION_DATE to 2017-03-31.
