Description Gerald Pfeifer freebsd_committer 2021-09-08 15:53:11 UTC
x11-fonts/fontconfig/pkg-plist has the following entry

  @dir /var/db/fontconfig

This breaks installing into a non-default prefix as a regular user:

Installing fontconfig-2.13.94_1,1...
pkg: Fail to create /var/db/fontconfig:Permission denied
ldconfig: mkstemp(/var/run/ld-elf.so.hints.zLG4s8): Permission denied
ldconfig: mkstemp(/var/run/ld-elf32.so.hints.dOlnQp): Permission denied
Running fc-cache to build fontconfig cache...
/bin/sh: fc-cache: not found
*** Error code 1

When I remove that line things appear fine for my purposes (testing of
ports), though I am not saying this is the general fix.
