Ben, I'm not sure I even saw your note way back when. I've retitled
the subject to be about just get-deps.sh, to avoid confusion bout it.
To address the points in your old note about my revision.:
* I alphabetized the arguments and the subroutines for consistency and
* You mentioned that I should not use "$()" syntax. It was helpful to
get the "printf" for SQLITE_VERSION handling into a single line,
because printf parsing is a bit odd.. I'm startled if any system
modern enough to compose Subversion 1.8.5';s dependencies do not
support that syntax, but but it's easy to unroll that change.
* You mention that apr-iconf is only at version 1.2.1, You're quite
correct, I'm fixing that ASAP.
* You point out that gtest is not yet used. If nothing uses it, why
was it ever added to get-deps.sh? I can disable that: I started
writing my version of this before danielsh pulled out the automatic
gtest, and hadn't merged back that modification.
* The "return 1" everywhere is to *stop* the individual subroutine,
but allow it to continue on to the next download. If I see one more
routine that does a "cd" or "wget"and ignores the result and continues
merrily on its way, I'm going to get upset. That said, the handling of
bad command lines is a bit odd, but I didn't elect to try to rewrite
* I updated the SQLite autoconf tool because the www.sqlite.org
doesn't list the release in the existing get-deps.sh as still being
supported. The repository is not browseable, so the only way to find
that old version is to know that it already exists. That strikes me as
a recipe for pain, so I grabbed the more resent release.
