I'm attempting to install neovim.

When I run sudo port install neovim, it proceeds to install clang-3.7. However, port rdeps neovim doesn't show clang-3.7 as a dependency.

So does this mean that neither neovim nor any of its dependencies require clang-3.7? If so, then What's causing the install of clang-3.7?

I have clang-4.0 and clang-5.0 installed. Will these work?

  • What does the log show. I just installed neovim and don't have clang installed – Mark Jun 15 at 18:47
  • It's not installing a binary package, it's trying to compile something. That's why it wants clang. It should be telling you what it's trying to install. – Marc Wilson Jun 15 at 23:29
  • @Mark The first section in the log where clang-3.7 is mentioned can be found here -- pastebin.com/raw/99uvGaj9 . Also, Clang-3.7 failed to build -- pastebin.com/raw/bnX1BSRQ . – I_Don't_Code Jun 16 at 1:26

    On Lion. That would have been useful to know. – Marc Wilson Jun 16 at 1:51
  • I don't believe that it should matter. Macports has many versions of clang and other compilers available for Lion. I have Clang-4.0 and Clang-5.0 – I_Don't_Code Jun 16 at 1:54
