 Perl 5 port
Author: Ted Fines 
Date:   14-11-03 20:12

Hi all,

I'm having trouble updating my FreeBSD 4.6.2 system to Perl 5.8.

I first ran CVSup as root 'cvsup ~/supfile' to update my base and lang ports. Here's my supfile:

# $FreeBSD: src/share/examples/cvsup/ports-supfile,v 1.19.2.5 2001/04/22 16:52:53 asami Exp $
# IMPORTANT: Change the next line to use one of the CVSup mirror sites
# listed at http://www.freebsd.org/handbook/mirrors.html.
*default host=cvsup10.FreeBSD.org
*default base=/usr
*default prefix=/usr
*default release=cvs tag=.
*default delete use-rel-suffix
ports-base
ports-lang

That all looked like it worked. Then I did:
cd /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8
make
make test

Everything looked great so far, no errors.

Then I did:
make install

And the output was:
su-2.05a# make install
===> Installing for perl-5.8.2_1
===> Generating temporary packing list
===> Checking if lang/perl5.8 already installed
pkg_info: illegal option -- O
usage: pkg_info [-cdDfGiIkLmopqrRsvVx] [-e package] [-l prefix]
[-t template] [-W filename] [pkg-name ...]
pkg_info -a [flags]
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8.

I haven't been able to come up with anything on this via Google. What have I done wrong? I've grepped the Makefile for references to pkg_info, but have found none.

The really bad part is that my previous version of Perl, 5.6.1, is now gone. I tried reinstalling it with the same 'make', 'make test', 'make install' commands above, but I get the exact same error.

Thanks,
Ted

There is sometimes danger is doing just a few collections. What if the port you are installing depends upon another port, in another collection, which is now stale because cvsup did not refresh it?

Have you solved this problem yet?
