w3m and MacPorts

For whatever reason, w3m refuses to build on my Intel OSX box with the latest boehmgc library. To get it to build, you must forcibly downgrade to boehmgc 6.8 or 6.7 or something earlier.

Also, I noticed that w3m isn’t marked as depending on gdk-pixbuf. Strictly speaking, it doesn’t, but it does if you have --enable-image=x11. :P Add this to your Portfile:

depends_lib lib:libgccpp.1:boehmgc bin:gdk-pixbuf-config:gdk-pixbuf

Also, it seems that either w3m or gdk-pixbuf-config appends an extra library to the config line for gdk-pixbuf-config (essentially, they specify -lgdk_pixbuf AND -lgdk_pixbuf_xlib). That extra library causes build problems for w3m; you can fix it by editing /opt/local/bin/gdk-pixbuf-config and removing the -lgdk_pixbuf from what it prints out (however, if you use other software that uses gdk-pixbuf-config, you may need to put it back once w3m has finished building).
