The math/maxima pkg has been updated to 5.42.1. when invoking maxima, it give the following warning message:
WARNING: Maxima is unable to set up the help system.
(Details: CL-INFO::LOAD-PRIMARY-INDEX: Couldn't load
file does not exist.)
I have checked the /usr/local/share/info/, there is maxima.info, but no maxima-index.lisp
I'm working on it. I'll fix it as soon as possible.

maxima - maxima-index.lisp fix
Here is the fix.
The file was installed into /usr/local/info instead of /usr/local/share/info. Now it is installed in the correct location.
I've bumped PORTREVISION.
I've also moved PLIST_SUB more consistently with the official variables ordering.
Patch has been tested successfully on my system (12.0-RELEASE amd64) and with poudriere (11.2-RELEASE amd64).
(In reply to Lorenzo Salvadore from comment #2)
Thank you very much for the quick fix. I will try when it is available from pkg.
Please wait to committ the patch: something else is wrong with info files. I'm fixing it.

maxima - maxima-index.lisp fix (correction 1)
Now all info files should install properly.
Because of a $ instead of $$, files maxima.info, maxima.info-1, maxima.info-2 and maxima.info-3 were not installed properly, so that help was broken. Now it's fixed.
Tested successfully on my system (12.0-RELEASE amd64) and with poudriere (11.2-RELEASE amd64).
