Re: FreeBSD ports for GDL2 and GSWeb

the linker problem is solved as was described by David. But as my knowledge of FreeBSD / Unix is limited, every new problem is taking lots of time to investigate. 

The one haunting me now is the fact that I have to run the poudriere command  to test my port for renaissance as root  and that for root, the GNUStep environment is not defined.

The GNUmakefile of libs-renaissance contains a test on the existence of a variable named GNUSTEP-MAKEFILES:

GNUSTEP_MAKEFILES := $(shell gnustep-config --variable=GNUSTEP_MAKEFILES 2>/dev/null)
$(warning )
$(warning Unable to obtain GNUSTEP_MAKEFILES setting from gnustep-config!)
$(warning Perhaps gnustep-make is not properly installed,)
$(warning so gnustep-config is not in your PATH.)
$(warning )
$(warning Your PATH is currently $(PATH))
$(warning )
$(error You need to set GNUSTEP_MAKEFILES before compiling!)

I get the message  You need to set GNUSTEP_MAKEFILES before compiling!)

This variable is not defined for the root user. I installed sudo, because I have used sudo -E in the past to solve problems like this (or so I think), but it didn't help

If anyone has a solution  ready, or  pointer in the right direction...

Thanks already ,

Is this the linker problem David mentioned earlier, or is this something that can be solved by changing the code?

just to let you know: I compiled renaissance, gdl2 and GSWeb under Debian 9 using this setup: https://github.com/plaurent/gnustep-build/blob/master/debian-9-clang-8.0-runtime-2.0/GNUstep-buildon-debian9.sh

Using ld.gold it worked without problems. I remember an earlier test using standard ld which did not work. So linking is an issue - but it should build without code changes. Make sure to use ld.gold and git master for libs-renaissance, libs-gdl2 and libs-gsweb. Maybe that helps…
