SunOS opensolaris 5.11 snv_101b i86pc i386 i86pc
On OpenSolaris 11, expat seems to be considered a native package. When X11_TYPE is set to "modular" and PREFER_PKGSRC is defined (in the current case it contains "zlib"), the definition of PREFER_PKGSRC in mk/defaults/mk.conf (containing expat) is overridden. This causes devel/apr0 to fail:
checking for Expat in /usr... no
configure: error: Expat was not found (or recognized) in "/usr"
Installing textproc/expat manually or adding it to PREFER_PKGSRC solves this issue.
I am unsure, what the real problem is:
- The pkgsrc guide allows to define PREFER_PKGSRC, but fails to mention that under certain conditions, it already contains some defaults. Maybe it should suggest a syntax that appends packages to a possibly already defined list.
- textproc/expat/builtin.mk checks for the presence of a native expat, which then does not satisfy the requirements of devel/apr0. Maybe the test is not sufficient?
