Description Boris Korzun 2021-10-12 12:30:26 UTC
There's a configure error after upgrade to 0.52.21:

checking libintl.h presence... yes                                                                                        
checking for libintl.h... yes                                                                                             
checking for python versions... ./configure: 3839: Syntax error: ")" unexpected (expecting "fi")                          
===>  Script "configure" failed unexpectedly.                                                                             
Please report the problem to ports@FreeBSD.org [maintainer] and attach the                                                
"/wrkdirs/usr/ports/devel/newt/work/newt-0.52.21/config.log" including the                                                
output of the failure of your make command. Also, it might be a good idea to                                              
provide an overview of all packages installed on your system (e.g. a                                                      
/usr/local/sbin/pkg-static info -g -Ea).                                                                                  
*** Error code 1                                                                                                          

There's no config.log in newt-0.52.21 directory.

Fix for --with-python

The post-patch-PYTHON-on target in Makefile is what breaks configure.ac by incorrectly assumeing the PYTHONVERS defintion it is updating is on one line (and presumably it was in the previous release).
Fortunately, the new release's configure.ac file allows specifying the Python version by argument, so this patch removes the redundant Makefile target and uses --with-python=${PYTHON_VERSION}.
Works for me on 12.2-amd64 (with Python 3.8)
Comment 2 Stewart Morgan 2021-10-13 08:48:56 UTC
Just to add that, though not strictly related to this bug, I also had to change the SOVERSION variable so that it matched the pkg-plist:
Comment 3 Boris Korzun 2021-10-13 08:59:14 UTC
Hi Stewart,

thx for the patch. It works for me on stable/13-amd64 also.
