Is it just me or does
portupgrade 2.4.12,2 have issues detecting changes in a port’s dependencies, particularly added dependencies?
portupgrade failed updating these two ports due to added dependencies:
This was the command I used to bring all installed ports up to date:
/usr/local/sbin/portupgrade -fprv \ shells/bash \ devel/cmake \ print/ghostscript9 \ math/gmp \ databases/libdbi \ databases/libdbi-drivers \ converters/libiconv \ devel/m4 \ security/p11-kit \ mail/p5-Mail-SpamAssassin \ lang/python27 \ lang/python33 \ sysutils/smartmontools \ sysutils/lsof \ sysutils/htop
x11/libxcb failed due to
x11/xcb-proto being missing and not being detected by
portupgrade as missing and required.
x11/libX11 failed due to
devel/xorg-macros being missing, despite both the latter ports are properly listed as requirements of the former.
The situation was eventually solved through manual intervention:
portupgrade -Nfprv x11/xcb-proto x11/xtrans devel/xorg-macros portupgrade -fprv x11/libxcb x11/libX11
Luckily, I’m not the only one with this experience: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=ports/184672. Maybe the permanent solution is to forego the
-p option used with portupgrade.
