Emacs ports: Improve consistency between two Emacs ports and...

Authored by jrm on Jun 10 2018, 1:55 AM.


  • Update editors/emacs-devel to a newer commit on the upstream master branch.
  • Do not link liblockfile when MAILUTILS options is off [1]. Users who want mail functionality should turn on the MAILUTILS option.
  • Create a link under exec_directory pointing to ${PREFIX}/bin/movemail. See upstream bug and PR 228833 [2].
  • Based on user feedback, change the package name for the nox flavor of editors/emacs-devel from emacs-devel_nox to emacs-devel-nox. The original motivation for naming the package emacs-devel_nox was so that PKGNAMESUFFIX would match the flavor names for USES=emacs ports and flavor names cannot contain '-'.
  • Remove patches that are no longer necessary. The patch emacs-devel/files/ is no longer necessary because 10.3, which included an old version of texinfo in base, is EOL. The lldb-gud patch is no longer necessary because the LLDB option has been removed.

Thanks for working on this. Your changes look good in theory. I'm running a test build, and it'll take me few hours (courtesy: webkit2-gtk3 ) to confirm they're good indeed.

Alright, looks good to me too. I don't see emacs linking to liblockfile being linked to, if it's installed, and MAILUTILS is off, and everything else is fine too.

Thanks Joseph
