RCS Commands Missing

While trying to get at some old files that used RCS version control, I found that the rcs commands are missing in Haiku (co, ci, rcs, rlog, etc). They're not on the Alpha4.1 image. They are in the source tree, but the usual build target of install doesn't make them. However, manually listing them as Jam targets gets them building.

Something for someone with Jam experience to look into...

Thanks for the hint. The sources should be pruned from the tree. A respective port could be added at HaikuPorts. I don't think RCS needs to be on the default Haiku image, though.

It also needs a bit of repair work to adapt Unix paths for Haiku. For example, "rcsdiff" looks in /usr/local/bin (or something like that) for the "co" command, and of course doesn't find it.

I think it would be good as an optional package. Subversion is already one, and Git too.

Looks like there is now a rcs_x86.hpkg in HaikuDepot, though you get a fatal error when trying to install it:

failed to find match for "rcs_z86" ()

Yes, with brackets at the end of the error message. Other packages download well enough.

Replying to AGMS:

failed to find match for "rcs_z86" ()

Typo - rcs_x86 is what was in the error alert.

The PROVIDES first line is missing a $secondaryArchSuffix.

rcs = $portVersion compat >= 5.9

Oops, my fault. Pushed a fix to haikuports, will get packages uploaded ASAP...
