mtr on mavericks via rudix(‘s ports collection)

With thanks to https://code.google.com/p/rudix/wiki/HowToMakeNewPackages and https://trac.macports.org/changeset/112285

hg clone https://rudix.googlecode.com/hg/ rudix
cd rudix/Ports/mtr

You’ll need to update the Makefile:

diff -r 11e7e05f8dd7 Ports/mtr/Makefile
--- a/Ports/mtr/Makefile Fri Jul 20 18:29:04 2012 -0300
+++ b/Ports/mtr/Makefile Thu Feb 13 16:03:51 2014 +1100

Title= MTR
Name= mtr
-Version= 0.82
+Version= 0.85
Revision= 1
URL= ftp://ftp.bitwizard.nl/mtr/
Source= $(Name)-$(Version).tar.gz

Now you’ll need to provide one small patch to be applied while building:


mkdir patches

Make yourself a patch file that looks like this:

diff -rupN mtr-build.orig/asn.c mtr-build/asn.c
--- asn.c 2014-02-13 15:59:36.000000000 +1100

now you can

make build

cd mtr-build/
sudo make install
