devel/cargo: New port for Rust's package manager

Authored by dumbbell on Jun 12 2015, 6:07 PM.



This port depends on lang/rust-nightly to build (D2798). It also requires a prebuilt version of cargo: I made one and put it on freefall. Finally, it needs several clones from GitHub, this is the "registry" in the distfiles.

Crap... arc diff --update picked all unrelated changed, sorry... I'll redo it.

Remove unrelated changes pollution

The cargo bootstrap process is unfortunate, but there's probably not much we can do about that. I had been trying to write a tool to bootstrap Cargo from just the Rust compiler, but it's not hardly working yet.

I agree, avoiding the need for a bootstrapped cargo binary would be nice. But such a tool would be a simple rewrite of Cargo itself in the end. Now that we have a port, a new bootstrap is easy to recreate: we just need to pick the executable from a previous package.

Thanks for reviewing this port. I will commit it after a similar review of D2798 (lang/rust-nightly) because it is required by this one.

Fix cargo.1 install location

While here, fix the version of the port: it should have been 0.3.0.

Update cargo.1 location in the manifest

Hmm, take maintainership for now until your sure it stable? It is unfortunate that rust doesn't have a active maintainer.

I don't really like this, but I don't see any other way of doing this. So carry on.

euh LOCAL/dumbbell gets translated to . Also can't you move all the distfiles into rust/ to begin with?

61 ↗(On Diff #6499)

Can't you replace this with USES=cmake or does Mk/Uses/ do something funny which breaks the build horribly for some unclear reason? (like it does for webkit2-gtk3...)

.include <> while this port doesn't have options you don't have to hassle with ..

This line can be removed. Left over from old and incorrect man location.

I added that for the cases I update the files but they are not available right away from the mirrors.

61 ↗(On Diff #6499)

cmake is not the main build tool for Rust, there is a non-autoconf configure script. cmake is used to build a dependency, libgit2.

In fact, this line was added by make makeplist after fixing the man page location. Does makeplist need an update?

40 ↗(On Diff #6499)

I was wrong, local/dumbbell gets resolved to the distcache. not people.f.o. Imoa I think it beter not to "abuse" people.f.o for this. And just wait until the new files get pickedup by the distcache.

10 ↗(On Diff #6499)

No it means that a useless empty directory is created during install for some reason.

Fix problems reported by @kwm

  • Take maintainership
  • Include and
  • Remove share/man and share/man/man1 from the stage dir

We don't need our own bootstrap, there is now one generated upstream.

While here, add a "gen-registry" target to automate the creation of the
registry. Many Git files are now excluded to reduce its size: it went
down from 28 MiB to 15 MiB.

Didn't spot anything that jumped out to me.
