Gzip (GNU zip) is a compression utility designed to be a replacement
for compress. Its main advantages over compress are much better
compression and freedom from patented algorithms.

WWW: http://www.gzip.org/
SVNWeb : Homepage : Distfiles Availability : PortsMon

NOTE: FreshPorts displays only information on required and default dependencies. Optional dependencies are not covered.

Runtime dependencies:
  1. indexinfo : print/indexinfo

This port is required by:

for Run * - deleted ports are only shown under the This port is required by section. It was harder to do for the Required section. Perhaps later...

To install the port: cd /usr/ports/archivers/gzip/ && make install clean
To add the package: pkg install archivers/gzip


Configuration Options
===> The following configuration options are available for gzip-1.6:
     DOCS=on: Build and/or install documentation
     RSYNCABLE=on: Include --rsyncable patch

Reduce unnecessary bsd.port.options.mk inclusions by using OPTIONS helpers.

For liborange, reverse the logic, as I'm pretty sure the OPTIONS were being

Update CONFIGURE_ARGS for how we pass CONFIGURE_TARGET to configure script.
Specifically, newer autoconf (> 2.13) has different semantic of the
configure target. In short, one should use --build=CONFIGURE_TARGET
instead of CONFIGURE_TARGET directly. Otherwise, you will get a warning
and the old semantic may be removed in later autoconf releases.

To workaround this issue, many ports hack the CONFIGURE_TARGET variable
so that it contains the ``--build='' prefix.

To solve this issue, under the fact that some ports still have
configure script generated by the old autoconf, we use runtime detection
in the do-configure target so that the proper argument can be used.

Changes to Mk/*:
 - Add runtime detection magic in bsd.port.mk

rafan search for other commits by this committer
- Set --mandir and --infodir in CONFIGURE_ARGS if the configure script
  supports them.  This is determined by running ``configure --help'' in
  do-configure target and set the shell variable _LATE_CONFIGURE_ARGS
  which is then passed to CONFIGURE_ARGS.
- Remove --mandir and --infodir in ports' Makefile where applicable
  Few ports use REINPLACE_CMD to achieve the same effect, remove them too.
- Correct some manual pages location from PREFIX/man to MANPREFIX/man
- Define INFO_PATH where necessary
- Document that .info files are installed in a subdirectory relative to
  PREFIX/INFO_PATH and slightly change add-plist-info to use INFO_PATH and
  subdirectory detection.
