Notes from UPDATING
These upgrade notes are taken from /usr/ports/UPDATING
  • 2010-01-22
    Affects: users of sysutils/policykit and sysutils/polkit
    Author: gnome@FreeBSD.org
    Reason: 
      Due to a recent change in sysutils/policykit, both sysutils/policykit,
      and sysutils/polkit need to be rebuilt, but in a certain order.  First,
      upgrade sysutils/policykit to 0.9_6.  Then, force rebuild and reinstall
      of sysutils/polkit.  If you do not do this, applications which depend
      on polkitd will fail.

tijl search for other commits by this committer
When linking a library libA with a library libB using libtool, if libB.la
exists, libtool will add all libraries libB.la refers to (dependency_libs
field) to the linker command line and store them in the dependency_libs
field of libA.la.  So everything that subsequently links with libA will also
link to these extra libraries.  This causes too much overlinking.

This commit modifies Mk/Uses/libtool.mk so it empties the dependency_libs
field in .la libraries during staging.  However, because .la libraries have
very limited use when dependency_libs is empty it makes sense to completely
remove them during staging.

So with this commit USES=libtool is modified to remove .la libraries and a
new form (USES=libtool:keepla) is introduced in case they need to be kept
(dependency_libs is still emptied).

* Fix a problem where waitpid() may return EINTR which causes the various
  polkit helpers to report a failure.  This fix allows dynamic polkit
  policies to actually work (e.g. mounting fixed drives with proper
  authorization).

* Workaround a bug in our version of getline(3), and check for EOF when
  getline does not return -1.

The FreeBSD GNOME team is proud to annunce the release of GNOME 2.22.0 for
FreeBSD.  The official GNOME 2.22 release notes can be found at
http://library.gnome.org/misc/release-notes/2.22/ .  On the FreeBSD front,
this release features an updated hal port with support for video4linux
devices, DRM (Direct Rendering), and better support of removable media.  Work
is also underway to tie webkit more closely into GNOME.  As part of the
GNOME 2.22 upgrade, GStreamer received a rather large upgrade as well.
Be sure to consult UPDATING on the proper steps to upgrade all of your
GNOME ports.

This release would not have been possible without the contributions and
testing efforts of the following people:

Presenting GNOME 2.16.1 for FreeBSD.  This release represents a massive
amount of work by the FreeBSD GNOME Team and our testers.

On top of the usual GNOME update, we have taken this opportunity to move
GNOME from X11BASE to LOCALBASE.  This means roughly 600 ports NOT part of
the GNOME Desktop also need to be changed.  The bulk of the move was carried
out by ahze, mezz, and pav, but it would not have been possible without
cooperation from the FreeBSD KDE team who worked with us to make sure
GNOME and KDE can still coexist happily.  We would also like to send a
shout out to kris and pointyhat for putting up with multiple test runs
until we got something that was solid.

Back to GNOME 2.16.  This release brings a huge amount of new functionality
to FreeBSD.  The standard release notes can be read at
http://www.gnome.org/start/2.16/ .  But on top of what you will read there,
