Update to 27.

Per request of mr@, add a slave port cad/ngspice-shlib (installs as ngspice_rework-shlib) that CONFLICTS with ngspice. This installs the port with SHLIB set, instead of the default X11.

This would be more appropriately a FLAVOR, since one and only one option (either X11 or SHLIB) can be set. However, we did not obtain a response from portmgr@.

I'm the maintainer here, can we please have a committer take a look?
Comment 2 Thierry Thomas freebsd_committer 2018-07-17 18:16:59 UTC
Better than a slave port, I would suggest to default to the option SHLIB.
cad/kicad 5.0.0 needs the shared libraries of ngspice and it would simplify packaging.

BTW, ngspice-28 is the latest stable release, according to http://ngspice.sourceforge.net/download.html

My concern with that is that as of ngspice 27, SHLIB will disable the CLI. I'm going to see if there's a way to build both in 28.

Patch to upgrade to 28

The attached patch upgrades ngspice to release 28.

Unfortunately, the options X11 and SHLIB are still incompatible, due to the redefinition of stdio functions.

Remark: ngsconvert ngproc2mod ngmultidec ngmakeidx nghelp are considered as old and outdated applications and they are no more built, unless you set --enable_oldapps
Comment 5 Thierry Thomas freebsd_committer 2018-08-21 20:09:15 UTC
@portmgr: the proposed patch creates a new slave port for the SHLIB option; is that still correct, or should we prefer a flavor?
Comment 6 Kevin Zheng 2018-08-21 20:11:53 UTC

I think it might be possible to build the two ports separately and just make sure the files they install don't overlap.

Great! It would be fine!

Patch to build both options as flavors

The proposed patch uses flavors to build the two versions, x11 and shlib, without using a slave port.

Approved. Let's get this in the tree.
