poudriere log with failure

With PERL unselected, irssi no longer builds in poudriere (see attached log), failing with the message:

meson.build:75:0: ERROR: Program 'perl' not found
Comment 1 David O'Rourke 2020-11-25 12:25:59 UTC
Thanks for this report.

It looks like Perl is required during the build, even if you aren't compiling support for Perl into irssi itself.

I should have some time to work on this later today.

Comment 2 Fernando Apesteguía freebsd_committer 2020-11-25 13:06:48 UTC
(In reply to David O'Rourke from comment #1)
Yes, at least when building with meson.

irc/irssi: Port always uses perl5

This patch ensures that the port always sets USES=perl5, as it is required during build when building with Meson.
Comment 4 David O'Rourke 2020-11-25 23:04:07 UTC
This patch should fix the issue, the port now builds successfully in Poudriere both with and without the Perl option.

  irc/irssi: Unbreak when PERL=OFF

  In r556069 the port changed to build with meson. This requires perl to build
  regardles of the option PERL that allows perl scripts to be run in irssi.

  While here clarify pkg-message (sent by daniel.engberg.lists@pyret.net)

Comment 7 daniel.engberg.lists 2020-11-26 08:46:29 UTC
Isn't this slightly incorrect, it's only a build repo if perl is turned off?


USES= perl5


.include <bsd.port.options.mk>

USE_PERL5=	build

Comment 8 daniel.engberg.lists 2020-11-26 08:47:31 UTC
Of course it should say build dep instead of build repo, sorry
