- pine Program for Internet News and E-mail with Japanese Support
- FORBIDDEN: "Remotely exploitable buffer overflows."
Port Added: unknown
Also Listed In: mail
License: not specified in port
Pine for FreeBSD 2.x is a tool for reading, sending, and managing
electronic messages. It was designed specifically with novice
computer users in mind, but can be tailored to accommodate the needs
of "power users" as well. Pine uses Internet message protocols (e.g.
RFC-822, SMTP, MIME, IMAP, NNTP) and runs on Unix and PCs. This
package also includes the Pico editor, the IMAP daemon, a POP2 server,
and a POP3 server.
This version supports kanji input using Canna. Canna can be started
by ^@ (or ctrl-space) in the Pico editor.
Note: Users are strongly encouraged to install pine4 package instead,
since pine 3 is known to contain security problems, as well as pine
4.x supports Japanese. However, pine3 with Japanese support provides
help files in Japanese and the pico editor supports input using Canna.

Even though this port has some useful features, like Japanese help files
and direct support for Japanese input using Canna on the Pico editor,
I decided to remove this port as:
1. It seems to continue to have security problems, which no one seems to be
2. mail/pine4 seems to support Japanese.
3. It doesn't seem like there will be an upgrade to this Japanize patch.

Unbreak this port. (Still forbidden, though.) While I was at it, changed it
to use newer (sort of) distfile and patch. I considered removing this port
from the collection since mail/pine4 supports Japanese in certain extent.
However, this port provides an editor with Japanese input support as well as
help files in Japanese, which may be value for some people. With this
commit, I'm closing: PR: 16872

Convert category japanese to new layout.

Mark all of the pine3/4 ports FORBIDDEN due to remotely exploitable buffer
overflows. Sorry guys, but having an insecure mailer just isn't worth it.

Rename INSTALLS_SHLIBS to INSTALLS_SHLIB. (There was a typo in the previous
commit message to bsd.port.mk, which said INSTALL_SHLIBS. Boo.)

Final round of the INSTALLS_SHLIBS=yes conversion. Few remaining ports with
ldconfig in PLIST need personal consideration.
