The MirPorts Framework can now be used on MidnightBSD out of the box, no special patching needed. MirMake, MirCpio, MirCksum and the package tools have been updated appropriately.

However, MirLibtool support is still missing. This is trivial, I just don’t have the time to do it right now, as I should be doing the release at the moment. Still, feel free to play with it.

Yeah. I did port MirLibtool to mnbsd, and found a bug (in upstream, even) while doing it. Nicey. Both devel/glib1 (autoconf-2.13) and devel/libtool (autoconf-2.61) seem to work (regarding libtool build systems, shared library building/naming, etc.) for now. I’m a little bit unsure about shared library naming conventions, but you can follow FreeBSD’s, even though Todd Vierling and I think they are weird and/or not what one wants. (For insiders like Benny: they do not use current/age/revision, set the third number to 0.)

We have a new “p5” port module, which must now be referenced by any users of ${P5ARCH} which do not include the “perl” module.

pvalchev@obsd replied to my issues with the UMAC64 hash that I might want to report the bug in libgcc’s umoddi3 implementation upstream. This shall be my TODO, someone please remember me to do it (check how to reproduce on $common_os, with $latest_gcc, etc).

miod@openbsd is helping me with the tvtwo(4) card — unluckily, I’m unable to test diffs because my monitor is too small… Doesn’t anyone happen to want to give away a TFT that can do 1152x900 for free? ☺
