Description philk 2005-08-28 09:30:15 UTC
The comms/hylafax notification program notify(8) uses awk to format the
e-mail notification.

The awk script is not compatible with the /usr/bin/awk in the base system
and only works with the gawk port.


The temporary fix is to install the lang/gawk port, then manually edit
/var/spool/hylafax/etc/setup.cache and change the AWK path to point to the
gawk executable.

The permanent fix is to make comms/hylafax dependent on lang/gawk and then
ensure that gawk gets selected as the awk program as part of configure.
Install the comms/hylafax port, then:

# /var/spool/hylafax/bin/notify doneq/q19 done 60
/usr/bin/awk: illegal primary in regular expression * at
 source line number 37
 context is
                          >>>  gsub("*","",status) <<< ;
[: -gt: unexpected operator
sendmail: fatal: No recipient addresses found in message header
