Description Nuno Silva 2020-03-13 10:08:27 UTC
Requesting a version bump, as there are new versions with features such as limited utf8 support and ability to read markdown and write epub.

(I will attach an updated ebuild and related files.)

Reproducible: Always

Patch for Makefiles: remove MAKEFLAGS from recipes
Comment 4 Nuno Silva 2020-03-13 10:56:20 UTC
This compiles here and so far appears to work, but I will do further testing.

It looks like dependencies have to be expanded for USE=fltk.

1.9.9 has become the current version as of 20200611.

Version bumps are usually a lot easier for us via github, but not mandatory.

diff htmldoc-1.9.8.ebuild htmldoc-1.9.10.ebuild

Thanks to Nuno Silva for app-text/htmldoc-1.9.8.ebuild and patches.

Bump to v1.9.10 from v1.9.8 (

Applies the following patches:
- htmldoc-1.9.8-desktop.patch (
- htmldoc-1.9.8-makeflags.patch (

- EPAI=7
- run eautoreconf
- add github homepage
- install as unstable for all archs
- --enable-cdsassl seems to work only on Darwin
- note that net-libs/gnutls already depends on virtual/pkgconfig
- note that isn't generated by autoheader (see next post for autoheader.out)
- note that htmldoc-1.9.8-makeflags.patch also removes MAKEFLAGS used only when building on Darwin
- in the future dev-libs/libgcrypt may become an alternative choice to enable ssl (either gnutls of libgcrypt)
- prevent stripping of htmldoc binary file by setting INSTALL_STRIP to an empty string (emerge will do the stripping)
- patching also and doc/* for /doc/${PF}/html (doc/3-cmdref.html requires it, instead the value is overwritten in by configure anyway)
- /doc/${PF}/html can also be patched in htmldoc/htmldoc.cxx, but the code is in a block that runs only if SNAP environment variable is defined ("snap" package).

Ahh, I'm sorry, I missed this when I did the bump.

Did I miss anything?

1.9.11 here, but a few subsequent fixups afterwards:
