Description Gerald Pfeifer freebsd_committer 2018-11-04 12:39:22 UTC
This ports fails to build with modern compilers such as GCC 8 or the
FreeBSD system compiler (clang).

Cf. http://package22.nyi.freebsd.org/data/112amd64-default-PR231590/2018-10-29_06h48m05s/logs/errors/grub2-2.00_12.log

This would break if we proceed with the update of the default version of
GCC in the Ports Collection from GCC 7 to GCC 8.

Also, this GRUB 2.00 was released in 2012, and a newer version GRUB 2.02
more than 18 months ago.

  Lock down to use GCC 7 since it does not build with GCC 8 nor clang.

  Sort various parts of this Makefile properly by pulling in ONLY_FOR_ARCHS
  earlier (and sorting its contents) as well as moving USES earlier and some
  unrelated variables later. [1]

  Also remove an obsolete conflict with Grub 0.x.

  Finally, though, mark this port for deprecation given that it's been
  without a maintainer for five-and-a-half years, not updated to Grub 2.02
  which was released one-and-a-half years ago, and fails to build with
  modern compilers such as clang and GCC 8. [2]

Closing this one, see 234508
Comment 4 Kubilay Kocak freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2019-08-12 00:16:52 UTC
^Triage: Can't close/resolve with Open dependents.

Instead mark as duplicate of bug 234508 (technically the latter ought to have been closed a duplicate of this (earlier) bug report)
