initial port attempt

I wrote up the initial attempt for a security/moloch port (AOLs large scale packet capturing, indexing and database system). 

The port compiles and works fine over here, however I can't finish it up as an npm-subpackage involves absolute paths when staging thus preventing a clean package build. It might be enough to somehow exclude the files from the plist, but I am not sure how to proceed.

Can someone more experienced have a look at that port, which otherwise appears to work fine?

Comment 2 w.schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2017-03-06 01:15:36 UTC
It compiles if I did on the commandline
make CFLAGS+=-I/usr/include CPPFLAGS+=-I/usr/include.
Cause this not work if I put it in the Makefile.

(Further I had problems to compile phantomjs Bug 217557 ).
Comment 3 h0rst 2017-03-07 05:18:58 UTC
I tried once more on a different 10.3 machine. All dependencies (including phantomjs, to which I contributed a patch for the 2.1.1 upgrade) went through. This port compiles, too to finally fail at the same position (during qa-stage) as described in the original post, the reason being some absolute path references.

This means I have no idea why it is broken for you.
Comment 4 w.schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2017-03-07 10:02:01 UTC
I think phantonjs is an own problem, have nothing to do with this port.

Maybe, I have problem cause I am using libressl (?).

after this it compiles (except the install problem).
Comment 6 w.schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2017-03-08 05:09:05 UTC
I can*t work it out.
But take a look in www/lessc/Makefile. Maybe, the solution for the install problem is there (I am not sure
but I saw similar in other ports with npm).

v0.17.1 with fixed staging

first, reworked above patch:
- v0.17.1
- use www/npm instead of www/npm2
- move simple source changes from ordinary patches to ${REINPLACE_CMD} runs
- fix npm staging problems (following hint by w.schwarzenfeld)

second, upgrade to current upstream:
- update to v0.18.2

problem #1: wise service remains disabled for now
problem #2: poudriere build fails due to lacking internet access of npm during build phase; cf.


and a proposed solution, which is outdated unfortunately,


- as outlined in the gh discussion above, it would appear that merely moving the npm bits to the fetch phase in order for poudriere to provide internet access won't work
Comment 10 Marcin Cieślak 2018-05-11 12:09:20 UTC
I'll have a look at it, I have solved the npm fetch problem in my unofficial node-sass port:
