xephem via MacPorts fixed

Posted on March 02, 2008 by Juan

Just a quick note that xephem now works when installed via MacPorts on Leopard (MacPorts Bug Report Ticket #13498). As noted by user “jmr” in that bug report, the error was apparently that

The build.args need to be set as described in the INSTALL file.

So I updated the ports files via an

sudo port -d sync
Followed by
sudo port install xephem
and xephem was installed via MacPorts again. I then removed manual install I had performed earlier with
sudo rm -rf /usr/local/bin/xephem /usr/local/xephem /usr/local/man/man1/xephem.1
I also removed the ~/.xephem directory and let the preferences rebuild. Now I am running with the MacPorts version of xephem again.
