I use MacPorts on Mac OS X Mountain Lion. This issue has been there for a year: whenever I upgrade MacPorts:
sudo port selfupdate
this seems to work fine. But then running:
sudo port upgrade outdated
it always fails at gettext:
Error: org.macports.activate for port gettext returned: Error: Failed to install gettext Please see the log file for port gettext for details: /opt/local/var/macports/logs/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_tarballs_ports_devel_gettext/gettext/main.log Error: The following dependencies were not installed: gettext Error: Unable to upgrade port: 1 To report a bug, follow the instructions in the guide: http://guide.macports.org/#project.tickets
Then if I run any
port commands at all, I get:
dyld: Library not loaded: /opt/local/lib/libintl.8.dylib Referenced from: /bin/sh Reason: image not found
Fortunately I have another Mac so usually if I copy the same dylib back from there I'd be fine afterwards.
I don't believe that this was a bug that was hanging for years. It must have been something I've been doing wrong. Question is what?
