Get notified when packages are built

A new feature has been added. FreshPorts already tracks package built by the FreeBSD project. This information is displayed on each port page. You can now get an email when FreshPorts notices a new package is available for something on one of your watch lists. However, you must opt into that. Click on Report Subscriptions on the right, and New Package Notification box, and click on Update.

Finally, under Watch Lists, click on ABI Package Subscriptions to select your ABI (e.g. FreeBSD:14:amd64) & package set (latest/quarterly) combination for a given watch list. This is what FreshPorts will look for.

17:20 emaste search for other commits by this committer pass through LDFLAGS -fuse-ld=*

Some ports depend on permissive or broken behaviour from the GNU BFD
linker, ld.bfd.  Clang and GCC support a -fuse-ld= flag to choose a
specific linker, and as we migrate to installing lld as the base system
/usr/bin/ld we'll want to make use of -fuse-ld=bfd to use bfd for ports
that fail to link, or fail to run when linked with lld.

An upstream libtool change[1] from Feb 2016 supports passing through
-fuse-ld=, but it has not yet made it into a release.  Patch an
equivalent change into via Mk/Uses/

Original proposal just patched in devel/libtool.  That would
address ports that run libtoolize via autoreconf, including lang/mono
which is one of the ports that fails to link with lld and responsible
for many downstream skipped ports.  Patching via
(tijl's suggestion) handles that case as well as ports that include
their own copy of

A later change may patch devel/libtool so that -fuse-ld works if using a
ports-installed libtool to build software outside of the ports tree; the
change in this commit is intended to address building in the ports tree.

Rewrite the target ordering code.

The targets now have priority assigned to them, and, when the dependency
ordering magic is done at the end of, they are sorted
according to their priority.

This allows USES to add targets easily and have them run whenever they
want without touching

To add a target that runs just before post-configure run, do:

_USES_configure+=  695:my-post-configure
	do something

To fine tune when the target is ran, look at the values in the *_SEQ
variables at the end of, and the other USES.

Allow ports Makefiles to override the priority of targets with the
TARGET_ORDER_OVERRIDE variable.  For example, to get post-install
running earlier, (its default is 700) do:

TARGET_ORDER_OVERRIDE=	  650:post-install

While there, add options target helpers for the do-* targets when they

By default libtool replaces -export-symbols <file> with -retain-symbols-file
<file> on ELF systems, but this doesn't really do what -export-symbols is
meant to do.  On GNU ELF systems it converts <file> to a simple version
script first and then uses -version-script instead of -retain-symbols-file.
Let USES=libtool patch libtool scripts to do this on all systems with GNU

Bump PORTREVISION on all ports where the build log contains -export-symbols.

audio/calf: This port builds a module that now exports only one function,
but it also builds a number of executables that link to this module and
expect to see other functions.  Because it's already a bit dodgy to link to
a module (libtool warns about this) let the module continue to export only
one function and instead build an ordinary library from the same source that
the executables can link to.  Fix a number of other issues in the same and clean up the port Makefile.

japanese/scim-honoka: Tries to hide all symbols that start with an
underscore, but because this library is written in C++ all symbols start
with _Z so it ends up hiding everything.  Just don't hide anything at all
like the textproc/scim configure script does.

multimedia/schroedinger: Apply an upstream patch.

textproc/scim-input-pad: Same as japanese/scim-honoka.

Replace USES=libtool:oldver with USES=libtool or USES=libtool:keepla in
the 32 ports that still use it.  Bump PORTREVISION on their dependent
ports except the ones that depend on these:


In these cases the same trick as in the recent gettext update is used.
The ports install a symlink with the old library version.  When enough
of their dependent ports have had regular updates the remaining ones can
get a PORTREVISION bump and the links can be removed.

Also remove the devel/pcre dependency from USE_GNOME=glib20.  It causes
over 2200 packages to depend on devel/pcre while less than 200 actually
link with it.  The glib20 package still depends on devel/pcre so this
should not make a difference for ports with USE_GNOME=glib20.  Also,
libdata/pkgconfig/glib-2.0.pc lists pcre as a private library so
USE_GNOME=glib20 should not propagate it.

- Eliminate helper variables like _*_ARGS=${*_ARGS:C/,/ /g}

Remove two libtool fixes from Mk/Uses/  They don't always work
when an older version of a package is installed.  This is the case when an
executable links with installed libraries and with uninstalled libraries
that link with other uninstalled libraries.  For each of the directly
linked libraries the executable will have an rpath (/usr/local/lib for the
installed libraries and a path under WRKDIR for each of the uninstalled
libraries), but not for the indirect libraries.  Both ld(1) and rtld(1)
search the rpath of the executable first before any rpath of libraries, so
the indirectly linked libraries will be found in /usr/local/lib if they are
installed instead of in WRKDIR.

With this commit executables will overlink with uninstalled indirect
libraries again so their location is added to the rpath of the executable.

This partially reverts r358784.

Add 4 new sed commands to USES=libtool.  The first two apply some of the
changes that Debian made to their libtool.  The first command applies to
libtool versions 1.4 and up.  The second command is somewhat more elaborate
but essentially it uses the sed hold space to move an "" block
down.  It applies to 2.x.  Together these reduce overlinking to unpatched
.la files (from ports that don't have USES=libtool yet but also .la files
in the work directory).

The third and fourth command fix relinking.  During staging libtool may
relink libA when it links to another library in the work directory libB.
The reason is that libA created during build phase has its runpath set to
the location of libB in the work directory.  This allows running an
executable that links to libA from within the work directory.  The relink
removes this extra runpath.

When libtool relinks libA it replaces "" on the linker command line
with "-L${STAGEDIR}${PREFIX}/lib -lB" with the intention to link to libB in
the stage directory but this -L flag isn't necessarily the first so another
libB may be linked instead.  The two sed commands make relink the same as a
normal link.  This means libtool will relink with libraries from the work
directory using a path similar to "../srcB/.libs/" without -L flags.
This applies to libtool 1.4 and up.  Earlier versions don't seem to relink
(This fixes ports like devel/apr1 so they link with freshly built libraries
instead of installed libraries.)

Fix all ports with missing libraries.

When linking a library libA with a library libB using libtool, if
exists, libtool will add all libraries refers to (dependency_libs
field) to the linker command line and store them in the dependency_libs
field of  So everything that subsequently links with libA will also
link to these extra libraries.  This causes too much overlinking.

This commit modifies Mk/Uses/ so it empties the dependency_libs
field in .la libraries during staging.  However, because .la libraries have
very limited use when dependency_libs is empty it makes sense to completely
remove them during staging.

So with this commit USES=libtool is modified to remove .la libraries and a
new form (USES=libtool:keepla) is introduced in case they need to be kept
(dependency_libs is still emptied).

PORTREVISION is bumped on all ports with USES=libtool that install .la
libraries.  Most ports are also changed to add :keepla because .la
libraries have to be kept around as long as there are dependent ports with
.la libraries that refer to them in their dependency_libs field.  In most
cases :keepla can be removed again as soon as all dependent ports that
install .la libraries have some form of USES=libtool added to their

Introduce USES=libtool to replace USE_AUTOTOOLS=libtool.

Unlike USE_AUTOTOOLS=libtool which makes a port use libtool from
devel/libtool, this just patches the copy of libtool included in the
port.  This allows adding it to all ports that use libtool including
ports that build Fortran libraries and ports that use different
compilers or binutils than the ones used to build devel/libtool.

USES=libtool also changes the library naming specification similar
to what USE_GNOME=ltverhack does.  Given the libtool version info
$current:$revision:$age and $major=$current-$age the library will be
named$major.$age.$revision instead of$current
and$major becomes a symlink.  Because $major increases
less frequently than $current this reduces the number of library
version bumps which means fewer rebuilds of dependent packages.
