 No package because port is marked as Forbidden/Broken/Ignore
Author: Thierry Thomas 
Date:   17-08-05 20:11

Hello,

When a port is marked BROKEN only on FreeBSD-4.x, but is OK on FreeBSD-5 or >, Freshports says that no package is available:

e.g. devel/bouml, lang/gambas or x11/rxvt-unicode.

Yes, I don't know how to get around that. Suggestions?

I guess that your server runs FreeBSD-4.x, and you test the result of `make -V BROKEN'.

You could cheat, and test the results of
OSVERSION=504102 make -V BROKEN
OSVERSION=600032 make -V BROKEN

Yes. Correct.

linimon and I have talked about that. I may try that and see what happens. It would be useful, but I have to see how I want to store that information and how best to retrieve it. It would be useful to see what ports are broken under what version.

There isn't a quick fix.
