You mention gmake, yet I use "# make install" all the time.  Is this
really gmake under the covers?  I see both executables and they differ:

freebsd% ls -l /usr/local/bin/gmake /usr/bin/make
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  378392 Jan 25 10:12 /usr/bin/make
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  156592 Jan 25 11:29 /usr/local/bin/gmake

This is what I found when looking for those four above files:

freebsd% ls -l /usr/local/libdata/pkgconfig/poppler-cairo.pc /usr/local/libdata/pkgconfig/poppler-cpp.pc /usr/local/libdata/pkgconfig/poppler-splash.pc /usr/local/libdata/pkgconfig/poppler.pc
ls: /usr/local/libdata/pkgconfig/poppler-cairo.pc: No such file or directory
-r--r--r--  1 root  wheel  304 Jan 27 11:43 /usr/local/libdata/pkgconfig/poppler-cpp.pc
-r--r--r--  1 root  wheel  222 Jan 27 11:43 /usr/local/libdata/pkgconfig/poppler-splash.pc
-r--r--r--  1 root  wheel  222 Jan 27 11:43 /usr/local/libdata/pkgconfig/poppler.pc

I rebuilt (make deinstall; make clean; make install) graphics/poppler.

It made and installed cleanly (as did pkg-config earlier this week).

I have these packages:

poppler-0.14.5      A PDF rendering library
poppler-data-0.4.4  Poppler encoding data
poppler-gtk-0.14.5  Gtk bindings to poppler
pkg-config-0.25_1   A utility to retrieve information about installed libraries

Which is the correct port to install this "poppler-cairo" file?

I see two copies in the ports tree:




When I run this:

   # pkg-config --libs --cflags poppler

I see this:

   -I/usr/local/include/poppler  -L/usr/local/lib -lpoppler

Is that to be expected?  Note that the file "poppler.h" exists here:


so would that not imply that -I/usr/local/include/poppler is wrong
and instead should be: -I/usr/local/include/poppler/glib ??

Thanks for all the suggestions, but I am still in a pickle...   :-(
