Description Mikhail Teterin freebsd_committer 2019-01-02 00:22:18 UTC
My PREFIX is /opt, but trying to build the port displayed errors related to /usr/local

It looks like the port uses a do-patch target to replace references to PREFIX with the values of the PREFIX. Seems like it does not get them all.

The better way of achieving the same is to simply tell make(1) to prefer values of environment variables over those found in the Makefile:

--- Makefile    (revision 489054)
+++ Makefile    (working copy)
@@ -16,7 +16,6 @@
 NO_BUILD=      yes
 NO_ARCH=       yes
-       ${REINPLACE_CMD} 's%\$$(PREFIX)%${STAGEDIR}/$$(PREFIX)%g' ${WRKSRC}/Makefile
+MAKE_ARGS+=    -e
 .include <bsd.port.mk>

With the above change, PREFIX used by make will be that found in the MAKE_ENV...
Comment 1 Mikhail Teterin freebsd_committer 2019-01-02 00:26:04 UTC
I apologize, the do-patch is still necessary (though, maybe, it should be post-patch -- in case any real patches are added to the port later).

Adding MAKE_ARGS=-e makes the port PREFIX-safe - and is necessary too.

Thank you for the report Mikhail

Please include the proposed changes as an attachment, that way we (I) can set maintainer-approval on it as it is a blanket approved change

Comment 4 Lars Engels freebsd_committer 2019-01-03 10:41:45 UTC

thanks for the patch!
But I think it is not necessary:


$ make PREFIX=/opt
# make PREFIX=/opt install

chyves will get installed into /opt then.
Comment 5 Mikhail Teterin freebsd_committer 2019-01-05 03:13:40 UTC
(In reply to Lars Engels from comment #4)
> $ make PREFIX=/opt

That's because you have it on command line (which seems to be passed to the child make).

If you have it set in /etc/make.conf, you'll get the error I got...
