Hi,

after the recent upgrade of devel/gvfs from 1.30 to 1.46 the gvfs-mount binary disappear. I checked /usr/local/bin but there is no entry. I dont use GNOME but I use devel/gvfs to mount SMB2 shares, what does not work with smbfs. Any suggestions where gvfs-mount could've gone?

What about using sysutils/gigolo? (I don't know if it helps, this was just a guess)

In any case, it does not seem to be a mistake, as it is also the case with other systems. I could not see
on the quick why it was removed or changed on GitHub.

It seems that gvfs-mount is deprecated (for quite a while) and you have to use gio mount. I can confirm that it works but now I can't find the mountpoint of gio-mount, whether in $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/gvfs nor in ~/.cache/gvfs.
I get upset every time I use new GNOME stuff!
