./lang/gprolog, GNU prolog compiler and interpreter

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.4.4, Package name: gprolog-1.4.4, Maintainer: brook

GNU Prolog is a native Prolog compiler with constraint solving over
finite domains (FD) developed by Daniel Diaz. A lot of work has been
devoted to the ISO compatibility. GNU Prolog is very close to the ISO
standard (http://www.logic-programming.org/prolog_std.html).

Log message:
lang/gprolog: Build failure is not jobs safe

gprolog fails to build on DragonFly-*-i386.
A fatal error (exception raised) occurs on fd2c.pl:215-220 on this
platform.  The build hangs after that (halts bulk build forever),
another job apparently never exits.

Setting the package to a single job fixes the problem, so apparently
a successful build is jobs safe, but not a build failure.
