System: NetBSD limiting-factor 5.1_STABLE NetBSD 5.1_STABLE (nervous-energy) #4: Fri Nov 4 16:57:02 MET 2011 root@youll-thank-me-later:/m/obj/m/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/nervous-energy i386
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
>Description:
programs from xdg-utils bomb out randomly depending on whether various
directories at absolute paths exist or not, none of which are in standard
pkgsrc locations.

Found by code inspection after packaging fotoxx failed with:
	xdg-desktop-menu: No writable system menu directory found.

>How-To-Repeat:

( cd /usr/pkgsrc/graphics/fotoxx && make )
>Fix:
	at least xdg-desktop-menu is full with absolute paths that may or may
	not exist in a pkgsrc environment, none of which are in standard
	pkgsrc locations and are inappropriate for USER_DESTDIR in any case.
	Locations checked include but are not limited to e.g. /usr/share,
	/usr/local/share, /etc/xdg.

State-Changed-Why:
I think that xdg-utils-1.1.3nb1 contains a fix for that, JFTR here
the commit message:

 revision 1.14
 date: 2018-08-20 02:43:33 +0200;  author: leot;  state: Exp;  lines: +9 -1;  commitid: m2EPYZbXvtWXfNOA;
 xdg-utils: Avoid hardcoded paths via a SUBST

 Previously all xdg-utils scripts just honored system /usr/local and /etc, fix
 that by substitute them via SUBST framework.

 Bump PKGREVISION

Can you please let us know if that fixes the issue?
(if that's the case we can also remove the workaround for that
in graphics/fotoxx/Makefile)


Thank you!
