Description Matthew Gregory Sr. 2008-11-15 20:01:01 UTC
new ebuild revision intended to address many issues related to libwww
 * add socks/socks4/socks5 support
 * add posix support
 * add optional enable/disables (USE flags)
 * make mysql inclusion handled by configure script instead of ebuild (if possible)
 * add regex support
 * make zlib inclusion optional
 * enable expat support
 * make md5 inclusion optional (handle use flag)
 * fix compilation with ssl when using posix
 * add mux support
 * should take care of bugs:
  * #150198
  * #179977
  * #182074
  * #182081
  * #193717
  * #205797
  * #213863

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 Matthew Gregory Sr. 2008-11-15 20:22:07 UTC
--without-md5 breaks the default build.

bug in libwww - wontfix for now.  Requires a patch.  MD5 will be used by default (old ebuild behavior)
Comment 2 Matthew Gregory Sr. 2008-11-15 20:35:28 UTC
--enable-posix breaks against openssl-0.9.8h - wontfix for now - posix use flag disabled
Comment 3 Matthew Gregory Sr. 2008-11-15 20:52:24 UTC
--with-expat is safe
no mention of expat is safe
--without-expat breaks the build

must manually set the configure variable, can't $(use_with expat)
this also means that expat must be installed to build libwww by default.  adding constraint to ebuild.
Comment 4 Matthew Gregory Sr. 2008-11-15 21:11:38 UTC
ran into this all over the place: it is generally unsafe with libwww to use any of the portage use_with/enable methods.

it's libwww's fault, so we either have to compensate with even more patches or (easy method) just allow it to continue silently building and linking against tons of other stuff.

i'm running out of time to spend on this, so I'm just going to update PDEPEND with everything this library really depends on.
Comment 5 Matthew Gregory Sr. 2008-11-15 23:21:21 UTC
drilled the problems I've been having down to examples.

need a patch to modify and to add an argument for --enable-examples that defaults to false.

This will fix all the other problems.

Unfortunately I know very very little about autoconf and this will take me a long time unless I get help.

For now, I'm doing this the same old ugly way.

Notes for someone else or me if/when I come back to this:

=== begin changes ===

AC_MSG_CHECKING(whether to enable examples)
AC_ARG_ENABLE(examples, [  --enable-examples          enable examples. NOTE: this will break things if you use --disable or --without),
[ case "${enableval}" in
    AC_DEFINE(HT_NO_NAGLE,, [Define to disable Nagle's algorithm])
    AC_DEFINE(LIBWWWEAMPLES,,[Define to enable examples])
  esac ],

====== end changes ======

Comment 6 Matthew Gregory Sr. 2008-11-16 00:56:31 UTC
ugh, I was trying to do this the hard way.
patchfile removes Library/Examples from subdirs in Library/ to avoid it entirely
zlib is still a hard requirement for now
expat still gets enabled if configure finds it afaict
md5 is still used no matter what, the configure script does this on it's own afaict

need a patch to enable socks, socks4 and/or socks5 so those use flags must be left out for now (needs to build against dante)

webdav use flag now handled
mysql use flag now handled a little more nicely (EXPEREMENTAL)
ssl use flag stays the same
X use flag now handled
regex use flag now handled

Functionally, this should be the same on all systems unless you enable webdav, X or regex in make.conf with the exception of mysql being found by configure instead of specifically linked in the ebuild.  That *may* have effects on non-linux systems, I simply do not know.

Obviously, testing required and I'll keep up with this bug.

For future reference placing a comment in an ebuild costs almost nothing and I would actually have some clue as to why the mysql libraries are specifically pointed to.  I have looked at the patchfiles and I know that there *may* be issues here, but the solution of hard-linking against the .so in the ebuild will almost certainly cause portability issues.  Please let me know if there is some reason this was done.

removes Library/Examples from subdirs in Library/

this just bypasses the Examples completely.  They weren't installed anyhow and they do not check which configure options were set/unset so the make blows up on almost anything.  No option in libwww to bypass this without patching the file.

That's a workaround, not a fix.  Still it's better than nothing, on a bug that has sat for six months without so much as a comment, so thanks.  Further discussion on that bug.

Comment 17 Matthew Gregory Sr. 2008-11-17 13:36:19 UTC
I'm adding flameeyes in on this as he started running into the same issues as I have but failed to see this bug before submitting his.

Flameyes: I am going to check r8 against your bug 213863.

I have spent all weekend working in w3c code and if there can be any universal truths in this lifetime then at the top of the list should be 'the w3c developers write horrible autotools code' ;-)
Comment 18 Matthew Gregory Sr. 2008-11-17 13:42:36 UTC
wups, flameeyes submitted his bug before this one so I was wrong in ^^ comment.

I tried all kinds of searches related to libwww and flameeyes's bug #213863 never shows up in the results.  I have no idea why.

A lot of commented cruft, can't find anything usable here. Also it's outdated wrt what is in tree now.

Post patch's against current ebuild instead.
