The latest update breaks building in minimal chroots (e.g. with aurutils), since the optdep will never be installed in the chroot. You need to add tcl/tk in makedepends still for that use case.

And the other alternative is to always build with --with-tcl --with-tk with tk/tcl being in both make and optdepends, many packages also do this approach.

It would still be 1 package. Here is what I mean, splitting like this

pkgname=('hfsutils' 'hfsutils-tcltk')

Then in build you would only have:

build() {
    cd "${pkgname}-${pkgver%_p*}"
    autoreconf -fi
    ./configure --with-tcl --with-tk
    make prefix=/usr
    make -C hfsck prefix=/usr

And package would be split into 2 section with:

package_hfsutils() {

package_hfsutils-tcltk() {
depends=('tcl' 'tk')

I suppose that we could split it, but then it's 2 packages to maintain. The TCL/TK interface is actually rather useful, or I wouldn't bother.

I mean to only build 1 variant, with --with. This way you need it in makedeps to build it. Alternatively a split package with programs that require tcl/tk just like debian does.

I already added them to optdepends. The problem is that the configure script isn’t smart enough to use tcl and tk without the —with logic.

micwoj92 commented on 2024-03-24 10:54 (UTC)

I think it would be better to add tcl,tk to makedepends and optdepends instead of relying on this logic.

ajacocks commented on 2024-03-24 05:55 (UTC)

the patch is no longer needed, as it seems that Debian already added it. I just added some logic to the build to configure with tcl and tk if present.

@ajacocks post patch here then i can add it.

Would you like to add the ability to build the tcl/tk GUI for this package? I have a small patch to make it build with modern versions.
