cool, thanks!

(I'd rather force user to re-compile the package than to install something that they don't want.)

Now it's: optdepends=('libvformat: for reading vcard files (needed at compile time)')

petelewis commented on 2011-03-12 14:27


Absolutely. The lbdb configure script will ensure that m_vcf is built if it finds libvformat on the system already. Otherwise, the plugin isn't built. There's no manual intervention required.

An optdepends would be good - though that could be a little misleading - really, it's an "optbuilddepends", since installing libvformat after compiling lbdb isn't enough.

I think that usually in this circumstance in the binary repos it would be added as a required build dependency though, then an optdepdends for runtime. But, it's up to you :-)

Hi Pete,
thanks for the heads up. Just to make sure - lbdb's PKGBUILD does not need to be changed (except for an optdepends) since the configure script automatically recognizes when libvformat is installed, right?

Hi, I managed to get a mostly working PKGBUILD for libvformat up, here:

It's not pretty, but it works (suggestions welcome!)

If you build lbdb with libvformat installed, then it will enable the m_vcf plugin, which reads from vcard files.

Thanks dolby, I've changed the lines according to your suggestion, but didn't increase the release number right now...

For future reference, make prefix=$startdir/pkg/usr sysconfdir=$startdir/pkg/etc \ mandir=$startdir/pkg/usr/share/man install can be replaced by:
make install_prefix=$pkgdir install

@npouillard, don't you have pod2man in /usr/lib/perl5/core_perl/bin/pod2man and a /etc/profile.d/ setting PATH=$PATH:/usr/lib/perl5/core_perl/bin ? (The path seems to have changed since some time ago.)

npouillard commented on 2010-10-31 16:36

Same as lydgate the pod2man issue.
