Lepton EDA is a fork of the gEDA/gaf suite.
It's compatible with gEDA, fixes many bugs and contains new features:

Comment 3 Tobias Kortkamp freebsd_committer 2019-02-07 10:27:36 UTC
It fails to configure with the NLS option off:

===>  Configuring for lepton-eda-1.9.7
Can't exec "autopoint": No such file or directory at /usr/local/share/autoconf-2.69/Autom4te/FileUtils.pm line 345.
autoreconf-2.69: failed to run autopoint: No such file or directory
autoreconf-2.69: autopoint is needed because this package uses Gettext
*** Error code 1

The build also seems to call groff during the build, so please add


Can you use USES=localbase or USES=localbase:ldflags instead?


This is what they are set to by default.  Please remove them.


All of these should go into EXAMPLESDIR instead.

A comment like

# Avoid error during stage:
# Cannot find 'install  -m 0644'; You probably want to pass -x $(INSTALL_DATA)

above pre-build would help to clarify what you're doing there :)

Tobias, thank you very much for the review! This is my first port, and you suggestions and comments are of great help to me.
I'll fix the port as soon as possible and upload the patch here.
Do I have to notify you somehow when that is done?


P.S. FWIW, I'm working on lepton-eda port for FreeBSD on github:

> Do I have to notify you somehow when that is done?

No, just uploading the updated patch here should be enough.  Then hopefully me
or someone from the ports team will take care of it.

New revision: 493674

  New port: cad/lepton-eda

  The Lepton EDA suite provides schematic capture, netlisting, bill
  of materials generation, and many other features.  It was forked
  from the gEDA/gaf suite in late 2016.  It's in active development
  and well supported.

Comment 8 Tobias Kortkamp freebsd_committer 2019-02-23 13:50:36 UTC
Committed. Thanks! :-)

- Options DOCS NLS EXAMPLES IPV6 are always enabled by
  default in every port, so adding them to OPTIONS_DEFAULT is not
- Something like USES=localbase localbase:ldflags means that
  the second localbase:ldflags is a no-op and just noise, since
  Mk/Uses/localbase.mk was already included before.
