saods9 build failure (tcl8.4 related)
Steve Langasek on IRC noted that tcl8.4 was b0rked on hppa, accounting
for the recent build failure:
Compiling with tcl8.3 would apparently solve this issue, and also
close #304804: "Crashes when run against a threaded TCL library". I
succeeded in creating a patch to compile with tcl8.3, but then there
is a runtime error "Have: tcl8.3; need: tcl8.4". I believe this is
due to (at least) libtk-img Depends: tcl8.4. So using tcl8.3 is not a
possibility for this package (assuming I continue to link against
Debian's shared libraries, and not statically link against a copy in
DS9 source tree).
Could someone let me know what my options are? Curiously, the 3.0.3-1
Even though it also calls $tclsh makemake.tcl >Makefile
I think the best option might be to request a P-A-S entry !hppa (and
make the associated Architechure: update). Does anyone agree?
Please Cc me.
