./devel/libuuid, Generate unique identifiers for objects

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


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.32.1nb1, Package name: libuuid-2.32.1nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

The UUID library is used to generate unique identifiers for objects
that may be accessible beyond the local system. This library
generates UUIDs compatible with those created by the Open Software
Foundation (OSF) Distributed Computing Environment (DCE) utility
uuidgen.

The UUIDs generated by this library can be reasonably expected to be
unique within a system, and unique across all systems. They could
be used, for instance, to generate unique HTTP cookies across multiple
web servers without communication between the servers, and without fear
of a name clash.

From util-linux-ng.

Log message:
On macOS (Catalina, at least), python37 and python38 fail in _uuid.so
with `ld: library not found for -luuid` when building with native
libuuid. Rather than trying to fix Python's detection logic, just make
this mistake impossible for anyone using macOS native libuuid. Building
with pkgsrc libuuid continues to work fine.

Log message:
libuuid package does not depend on python, so disable finding it.
