Subject:   Shared library not found after upgrade to 9.2-PRERELEASE
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
I recently upgraded a system to 

FreeBSD 9.2-PRERELEASE FreeBSD 9.2-PRERELEASE #0 r254977: Wed Aug 28 19:58:37 PDT 2013  i386

I then deleted all the installed ports, and am rebuilding the
ones I still use.

I've encountered several instances where although a required
port is already installed, a dependent port build will claim that
the required library isn't found, and attempt a (re-)install of
that port.

In this example, jbig2dec claims that shared library
is not found, although 'ls' says it is in /usr/local/lib, and
'make missing' reports no uninstalled dependencies.

What can I do to remedy this, short of setting FORCE_PKG_REGISTER
and spending a lot of time rebuilding ports that are already

Please Cc: me on replies.

Thank you!

      You may wish to ``make deinstall'' and install this port again
      by ``make reinstall'' to upgrade it properly.
      If you really wish to overwrite the old port of graphics/png
      without deleting it first, set the variable "FORCE_PKG_REGISTER"
      in your environment or the "make install" command line.
