Description Didier Barvaux 2010-04-09 17:05:51 UTC
With net-libs/libetpan-1.0 (not in the tree yet but available in bug #313097), mail-client/claws-mail-3.7.5 fails to build.

The problem comes from a faulty check in the configure that does not handle well the new 1.0 version string. The bug was reported upstream (see URL field) but it would be great to have this patch applied by the Gentoo ebuild.

I'm going to attach the bugfix patch and an ebuild diff for mail-client/claws-mail-3.7.5 that applies the patch.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge '=net-libs/libetpan-1.0'
2. emerge '=mail-client/claws-mail-3.7.5'
3. configure fails

Actual Results:  
checking for libetpan-config... /usr/bin/libetpan-config
checking libetpan/libetpan.h usability... yes
checking libetpan/libetpan.h presence... yes
checking for libetpan/libetpan.h... yes
checking whether libetpan-config hints compiles and links fine... yes
*** Claws Mail requires libetpan 0.57 or newer. See
*** You can use --disable-libetpan if you don't need IMAP4 and/or NNTP support.
configure: error: libetpan 0.57 not found

Expected Results:  
The configure script should detect that version 1.0 is greater than 0.57.

Patch to apply the bugfix in the claws-mail/claws-mail-3.7.5 ebuild
Comment 3 Tim Harder gentoo-dev 2010-04-09 18:19:30 UTC
We could also take this opportunity to use at least EAPI 2 for the src_prepare and src_configure phases instead of using the src_unpack and src_compile phases.

In addition, we might consider setting some decent IUSE defaults (supported by EAPI 1 and later) so things like imap support are included by default.

Ebuild updates for claws-mail-3.7.5-r1

Ebuild updates for claws-mail-3.7.5-r1:
  * Use EAPI 2 for src_prepare and src_configure phases
  * Use autotools eclass for eautoreconf call
  * Add a couple IUSE defaults
  * Use src_prepare phase to apply the attached patch to fix the configure bug with >libetpan-0.57
  * Use src_configure instead of src_compile (use default src_compile phase so the emake call is unnecessary)
  * Organize code that sets libetpan and gnutls configure flags -- adds a few more lines to the ebuild, but the code seems clearer rather than always setting the disable flags and then tacking enable flags on top if the correct USE flags are enabled
  * Explicit die for econf is unnecessary since it automatically calls die if the configure script fails

Successfully tested on my system with libetpan-1.0. Thanks Tim.
Comment 6 Jeremy Olexa (darkside) (RETIRED) archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2010-04-15 03:14:02 UTC Please respect metadata.xml if you are going to wrangle bugs. Thanks in advance.

FWIW, I was just trying out claws-mail and also think that +imap would be a great improvement! re-compiles are not fun for what most people consider basic use of a mail-client! :)
Comment 7 Christian Faulhammer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-04-15 07:30:57 UTC
Thank you for Will do both packages soon.  Does libetpan 1.0 have anymore side-effects (like API/ABI change)?

I think there's a small API change and the soname version has changed.

Oops sorry. Next time better. Seems I have not actually memorized the entire tree's metadata yet... :o)

You're right for the API change, see a fragment of the changelog below:

  2010-04-05 - libetpan-0.58cvs19 - hoa
   * build-mac/
     import of OpenSSL (prepare build for iPhone including OpenSSL)
   * src/driver/implementation/pop3/pop3driver.c
   * src/driver/implementation/pop3/pop3driver_cached.c
   * src/driver/implementation/pop3/pop3driver_tools.c
   * src/low-level/pop3/mailpop3.[ch]
       better error checking (2888850). Thanks to Alexander Shlemin.
         API change.

I've tracked the API change, it seems to be a change of return type for the mailpop3_list() functions provided in /usr/include/libetpan/mailpop3.h. See for a diff of the change.

You are also right for the soname version:
  0.57 ->
  0.58 ->
  1.0  ->
Comment 11 Christian Faulhammer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-04-20 19:05:12 UTC
Thank you for your support, I incorporated all of these changes.
Comment 12 Didier Barvaux 2010-05-09 15:18:56 UTC
Work without any problem with libetpan 1.0. I close the bug.
