Comment 1 Fernando Apesteguía freebsd_committer 2020-06-24 06:42:12 UTC
Hi Nikolaj!

^Triage: If there is a changelog or release notes URL available for this version, please add it to the URL field

Also, could you remove this commented line?:


And last thing, would it be possible to get a svn diff for the patch? shar files are recommended for new ports mainly :-)

svn diff

I just added an "svn diff" + added the changelog URL - please note that the changelog is dynamic, so in order to get the full picture one must change the origin version back to the previous version 7.6.4
Comment 3 dewayne 2020-06-25 04:26:41 UTC
(In reply to Nikolaj Thygesen from comment #2)
The prospect of doing the move to cmake was prohibitive.  I appreciate you taking over the port.

I've been using swi-pl for a few years.  Though I've changed the Makefile's USES readline to USES libedit, without adverse effect and honouring the intent of the BSD2CLAUSE licence. ;)

My version of swi-pl is CLI only, very bare bones and no X11 stuff as I use it to remotely manage servers. Would the details be of any use? (Perhaps a CLI only flavour?) :)
Comment 4 Nikolaj Thygesen 2020-06-25 20:37:37 UTC
Thanks for the info. We likewise use it cli only; it seems xpce is falling from grace a bit :o) I'm also considering adding a config dialog later; right now we just want it updated to most recent release, since we got a few bugs fixed upstream.

Would you mind having a look?

Comment 6 Nikolaj Thygesen 2020-06-26 12:15:31 UTC
Sure thing - I will add all orphaned files to pkg-plist. What I don't understand is that after making the port, I can find all the five missing files in the proper places under "./work/stage" and "make install" completes successfully!? I don't know how to fix that.
Comment 7 Fernando Apesteguía freebsd_committer 2020-06-26 12:28:49 UTC
(In reply to Nikolaj Thygesen from comment #6)

I can't :-)
I'm doing clean builds with poudriere:

root@12_1amd64-default:/wrkdirs/usr/ports/lang/swi-pl/work/stage # find . -name uuid.pl
root@12_1amd64-default:/wrkdirs/usr/ports/lang/swi-pl/work/stage # ls usr/local/lib/swipl/library/uu*.pl
ls: No match.

Maybe they are there from a previus build? 

Tip: make makeplist does a pretty nice job generating pkg-plist files although _we need to always check_ the result :-)

Hi Nikolaj,

The port does not build on i386

It might need BROKEN_i386:

src/libswipl.so.8.2.0: undefined reference to `__atomic_compare_exchange_8'
src/libswipl.so.8.2.0: undefined reference to `__atomic_fetch_add_8'

Mark i386 broken

As suggested I mark i386 broken for now. I pretty much think I know what the issue is, but I need a little time to fix it. Interestingly this seems related to the "old" mips-brokenness, so perhaps this can eventually go away as well.

Makefile diff for CLI only, reduced function

Indeed thank-you both :)

I have swi-pl version 8 running on both an i386 and amd64 jail on FreeBSD 12.1-STABLE. 

Unfortunately I have port ncurses installed, so swi-pl links to both
        libncurses.so.8 => /lib/libncurses.so.8 (0x8019d7000)
        libncurses.so.6 => /usr/local/lib/libncurses.so.6 (0x801c9c000)
even when I have explicitly included USES+=ncurses:port. Please note that:
- /usr/local/lib/swipl/lib/amd64-freebsd/libswipl.so.8 brings in /lib/libncurses.so.8
- libedit brings in /usr/local/lib/libncurses.so.6

I have a very specific use for PROLOG so I've pruned the Makefile to my needs.  From the included Makefile (for both) and the pkg-plist diff for the amd64, I am running swi-pl from a package as a CLI only application.

The i386 version doesn't seem to like tex files so I needed to make additional adjustments to those files (the Makefile change reflects this).

Preliminary testing on cputypes: c3-2, prescott and haswell are favourable. 

Screen grab from within an i386 jail:

Additional changes are required for i386 pkg-plist to build a package.

This port upgrade is very much appreciated.
Kind regards.
Comment 14 Nikolaj Thygesen 2020-07-03 10:49:58 UTC
If I understand you correctly, you would like to have the ability to disable certain features to get a leaner installation. This fits pretty well with my thoughts on having a config dialog, but first I would like to get everything to build on i386, which I hope to find time for today.
