gettext 0.19.3 in FreeBSD

devel/gettext, as of version 0.19.3, has been split into three ports:

  1. devel/gettext, the meta-port depending the two next ports;
  2. devel/gettext-runtime, the runtime libraries; and
  3. devel/gettext-tools, the tools for managing the message catalogs.

In my case, as I build my own ports, making the transition required manual intervention using both portupgrade and the ports collection tree:

portupgrade -fpvo devel/gettext-runtime gettext
cd /usr/ports/devel/gettext-tools && make && make install && make package && make clean
cd /usr/ports/devel/gettext && make && make install && make package && make clean
portupgrade -fprvx gettext -x gettext-runtime -x gettext-tools devel/gettext-runtime
