Cannot install ntop from ports (9.1)

Good evening everybody, first post here.

I set up a minimal install a few weeks ago to be my new home firewall. Everything is working well with pf and bridging, everything is upgraded as much as possible with freebsd-update and portsnap.

I decided it was time to monitor my traffic so ntop should fit the bill. After a day of compiling all the dependencies it fails. My keen detective skills make me think it's somehow related to Python, but I don't know where to start looking. Is this a Python version mismatch?

Thanks for looking.

Nope, didn't change anything. I ran this to do the rebuild:

portmaster -fR --force-config lang/python27

PTH was already selected, and I didn't change any config options on the dependencies. Still getting the same error:

Code:

Please, show entirely the log of failed build process, use pastebin.com and paste the URL here.

This bit from the log is interesting:

Code:
 **Testing Optional libraries and headers**
 
checking for Multithreading... ok
checking for openSSL... ok
checking for zlib... ok
checking for python-config... /usr/local/bin/python2.7
>>>> Unable to locate python-config: using workaround <<<<
checking for python... (cached) /usr/local/bin/python2.7
checking Checking python version... Python 2.6 or newer is available

/usr/local/bin/python2.7-config does exist and has permissions of 555.

About the warning related:
Code:
/usr/local/include/pth/pth.h:575:1: warning: "send" redefined
In file included from ntop.h:254,
                 from globals-core.c:26:
/usr/local/include/pth/pthread.h:533:1: warning: this is the location of the previous definition

The globals-core.c source file includes the header /usr/local/include/pth/pthread.h then includes the header pth.h. Both header files contain a #define send entry in the direction indicated by the warning, the first defined as "send" and subsequent changes to the definition pth_send, and so it is with the others. The warning is just say "Hey you defined this twice different things!".

Please, show your make.conf

Send a PR for this software bug.

Sure, it only has two lines, I have never edited it manually:

Code:
# added by use.perl 2013-01-03 13:16:18
PERL_VERSION=5.14.2

Only for checking if works, rebuild lang/python27 without PTH option, then install net/ntop. Later you can reinstall first port with PTH enabled.

Perfect! That worked, thanks cpu82.

Just for wrap-up I ran:

# portmaster -fR --force-config lang/python27

Deselected PTH but left everything else as default. Then ran:

# portmaster net/ntop

I had to add the new user and rc.conf entries and it looks like everything is working now.

Please, submit a PR to report this bug, now we know that maintainer should remove PTH dependencies or include it as option in port.

Will do. I have never done a PR before, so I'm reading the guidelines and such.
