Move some gnome@ ports to desktop@

As gnome@ is lacking active committers at the moment, transfer some of its
ports [1] up the stack to the desktop@ group, in hope that this way we get some
updates in as the set of people that "should feel responsible" grows.

As soon as gnome@ grows some committers again, this can (and should) of course
be reverted again.

[1] The list of ports chosen in this move consits of all the ports that are
required to build x11/kde5.

Remove iconv(), iconv_open() and iconv_close() symbols from libiconv.

These were FreeBSD specific aliases for libiconv(), libiconv_open() and
libiconv_close() that are now also provided by libc which complicates
writing configure tests that work correctly when both libc iconv and
libiconv are available.

Also, because the libiconv iconv.h header redefines iconv* to libiconv*
correct use of the header implies that the aliases aren't used.

The following ports needed fixes because there was something wrong with
the way they tried to detect or use iconv:

audio/deadbeef: Remove LIBICONV_PLUG from a source file.  It's a
compile-time option and should not be set in source code.

This fixes building devel/gettext-runtime with gcc from lang/gcc*.
With base system compiler gettext includes /usr/include/iconv.h but
lang/gcc* implies -I/usr/local/include and gettext calls
libiconv_set_relocation_prefix when it sees _LIBICONV_VERSION which
isn't implemented (and isn't needed) by libc iconv.

- Remove const qualifier from iconv(3) to match POSIX:
- Patch iconv.h to expose more GNU extensions when LIBICONV_PLUG is
  defined because the base system iconv supports these extensions too.

Add/remove patches to/from ports to call iconv with non-const arguments.

This breaks some ports on FreeBSD 10 because base system iconv.h still has
the const qualifier.  Fix this by letting USES=iconv add a build dependency
on converters/libiconv so ports can use its iconv.h (with LIBICONV_PLUG
defined) instead of the base system iconv.h.

This exposed some ports that link with libiconv when it is available instead
of using libc iconv.  In these cases one of the following changes has been

Split devel/gettext in devel/gettext-runtime and devel/gettext-tools.  The
first contains runtime libraries such as libintl and the latter contains
developer tools such as msgfmt.  Ports that use gettext will usually need
a LIB_DEPENDS on gettext-runtime and a BUILD_DEPENDS on gettext-tools.

USES=gettext-runtime can be used to set a LIB/BUILD/RUN_DEPENDS on
devel/gettext-runtime and USES=gettext-tools can be used to set a
BUILD/RUN_DEPENDS on devel/gettext-tools.  USES=gettext is now the same
as "USES=gettext-runtime gettext-tools" meaning a LIB_DEPENDS on
devel/gettext-runtime and a BUILD_DEPENDS on devel/gettext-tools.

Update gettext to 0.19.3.

Remove :oldver from converters/libiconv and devel/gettext-runtime.  Leave
symlinks with the old library versions to avoid the need to bump
PORTREVISION on a large number of dependent ports.  When most of the
dependent ports have had normal version updates, PORTREVISION can be
bumped on the remaining ones (low number) and the links can be removed.

Fix some ports that installed files in lib/locale instead of share/locale.

- Add two new arguments to USES=iconv so ports can indicate they use GNU
  iconv extensions that the base system iconv doesn't support yet:
  * wchar_t: port uses the special WCHAR_T character conversion.
  * translit: port uses //TRANSLIT or //IGNORE conversion options.
  Adding one or both of these arguments makes the port depend on
  converters/libiconv for now.
- Allow installation of converters/libiconv on FreeBSD 10+.
- Use ICONV_CONFIGURE_ARG in devel/gettext instead of defining CPPFLAGS
  and LDFLAGS to fix compilation with libiconv installed.
- Stage converters/libiconv and devel/gettext.

Build libiconv with -std=gnu89.

libiconv fails to link when built with a C99 compiler, because it uses

Presenting GNOME 2.20.1 and all related works for FreeBSD.  The official
GNOME 2.20 release notes can be found at .  Beyond that, this update
includes the new GIMP 2.4 (courtesy of ahze).

The GNOME 2.20 update also includes a huge change in the FreeBSD GNOME
hierarchy.  We are now using the more standard DATADIR of ${PREFIX}/share
rather than ${PREFIX}/share/gnome. The result is that fewer patches and
hacks are needed to port GNOME components to FreeBSD.  This will mean some
user changes may be required, so be sure to read /usr/ports/UPDATING for
more details.

This release and the things we accomplished in it would not have been
possible without mezz's crazy idea to collapse DATADIR, and his persistence
to make it happen successfully.  Ahze and pav also deserve thanks for

Mass-conversion to the USE_AUTOTOOLS New World Order.  The code present
in essentially makes this a no-op given that all the
old variables set a USE_AUTOTOOLS_COMPAT variable, which is parsed in
exactly the same way as USE_AUTOTOOLS itself.

Moreover, USE_AUTOTOOLS has already been extensively tested by the GNOME
team -- all GNOME 2.12.x ports use it.

Preliminary documentation can be found at:

Apply a big libtool patch to allow porters to use the libtool installed by
the libtoolX ports instead of the one included with each port.  Ports that
set USE_LIBTOOL_VER=X will now use the ports version of libtool instead of
the included version.  To restore previous behavior, use the new macro,
USE_INC_LIBTOOL_VER.  Both macros accept the same argument: a libtool version.

For example, to use the ports version of libtool-1.5, add the following to
your Makefile:

USE_LIBTOOL_VER=        15

To use the included version of libtool with extra hacks provided by
libtool-1.5, add the following to your Makefile:


With this change, ports that had to add additional libtool hacks to prevent
.la files from being installed or to fix certain threading issues can now
delete those hacks (after appropriate testing, of course).

Whoa there, boy, that's a mighty big commit y'all have there...

Begin autotools sanitization sequence by requiring ports to explicitly
specify which version of {libtool,autoconf,automake} they need, erasing
the concept of a "system default".

For ports-in-waiting:

        USE_LIBTOOL=YES         ->      USE_LIBTOOL_VER=13
        USE_AUTOCONF=YES        ->      USE_AUTOCONF_VER=213
        USE_AUTOMAKE=YES        ->      USE_AUTOMAKE_VER=14

Ports attempting to use the old style system after June 1st 2004 will be
sorely disappointed.

Iconv cleanup, stage 1a: remove `g' prefix from binaries, headers, libraries and
manpages installed by libiconv (aka GNU iconv) and add similar `b'-prefixes
into components installed by iconv (aka BSD iconv). The reason why we do this
is because unfortunately BSD iconv become abadonware (author doesn't maintain
it anymore), while number of ports that need functional iconv library grows
very fast, thus creating significant overhead due to patches needed to make
ports working with prefixed GNU iconv. For compatibility reasons create
symlinks in GNU iconv, so that all ports that expect GNU iconv to have `g'
prefix should work unmodified until all those `g'-hacks are wiped out.
