Fwd: Re: FreeBSD Port: argouml-0.28.1 - .desktop file

Hi list,

per suggestion of the original poster, I added a desktop entry to the 
Makefile of devel/argouml.  Installing the port fails because the 
resulting pkg-plist is incorrect.  The patch seems correct according to 
the Porters Handbook ( 
), but maybe I've made a mistake.  I'm also not sure if fetching the 
icon file from a jar archive is supported, it could be added manually.

I created the attached patch, but the install phase fails because the
desktop file is installed to the wrong location (see also the
generated PLIST file).  This is the way described in the Porters

Maybe someone at ports@ knows?
