I am trying to set up a new INFO file for ImageMagick. Its recent version, 6.7.5-6, needs a more up-to-date version of PANGO, at least 1.28.1. PANGO 1.28.4 creates a new problem: it needs GLip 2.24 (and recent PANGO 1.29.x might need much more updates). So I set up a new INFO file for pango1-xft2-ft219, based on PANGO 1.28.3. I also checked a few bug reports and seems that two are resolved and the problem with '-I<SPACE>' is also past. So I commented and deleted some lines at the end of the DescPackaging block. One bug seems to persist, the one in modules/basic, where one set of C flags comes too early.
I have a bug, https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=670891, with 'make check'.
The ConfigureParams received an update, --disable-silent-rules, in order to get more information from make.
I have a problem with the line in the PatchScript involving Perl – I commented it applied the patches directly. LDFLAGS and CFLAGS are a bit augmented to accelerate build and produce valuable information. The build succeeds on intel (Sandy Bridge) Mac OS X 10.6.8 with 'fink -vm --build-as-nobody rebuild pango1-xft2-ft219-shlibs pango1-xft2-ft219-dev pango1-xft2-ft219' in one thread or in parallel. When installed ImageMagick builds with this installed version of PANGO.
I'm going to test on PPC (G4, 7447A) on Mac OS X 10.5.8. Some time later I'll probably boot Tiger (10.4.11) and see what is building.
I tried to install PANGO with the patch applied via Perl – this works pretty good on intel Mac OS X 10.6.8 and PPC Mac OS X 10.5.8 and 10.4.11. Except of Tiger I could build ImageMagick 6.7.5 with PANGO 1.28.3. On Tiger I have to wait a few hours to be able to try that. Here is the recent version of the INFO file:
