https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=257085 Bug ID: 257085 Summary: lang/racket: update to 8.1 Product: Ports & Packages Version: Latest Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Only Me Priority: --- Component: Individual Port(s) Assignee: olgeni@FreeBSD.org Reporter: email@example.com Flags: maintainer-feedback?(olgeni@FreeBSD.org) Assignee: olgeni@FreeBSD.org This patch updates lang/racket to version 8.1. With Racket 8.0, the default backend was switched to an implementation based on Chez Scheme. The old byte code interpreter is still supported. The patch introduces two options -- BC and CS. I made them mutually exclusive, even though Racket supports building and installing both backends simultaneously. The CS backend is enabled by default. The --enable-libffi and --enable-places options where added to BC_CONFIGURE_ON. The CS backend configure script does not provide these options. Racket claims to support the Chez Scheme backend on i386, amd64, armv6, aarch64 and powerpc (https://github.com/racket/racket/blob/master/racket/src/ChezScheme/README.md) on FreeBSD, but only amd64 and i386 seem to have machine types defined. I could not test if the CS backend works on architectures other than amd64 and i386, or which machine types the configure script chooses there. According to the Racket documentation, JIT compilation is supported on 32 bit PowerPC (c.f. https://docs.racket-lang.org/guide/performance.html#%28part._.J.I.T%29). I carried over the patch to src/bc/sconfig.h since I do not have access to FreeBSD machines with architectures other than amd64 and i386. This patch is based on the work by 'm.ne' in Bug 255529. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
