"make check" cannot run before "make install" with gnupg 2.1.19
Closed, ResolvedPublic


If "make check" is run before "make install" I get "error running
'/usr/local/Cellar/gnupg21/2.1.19/bin/gpg2': probably not installed"

This seems specifically to affect gpgconf.scm and tofu.scm.

The path /usr/local/Cellar/gnupg21/2.1.19/bin/gpg2 is indeed where gpg2 gets
installed after "make install", but that's not where it is if we run "make
check" before "make install", since it hasn't been installed in the prefix yet.

This did not occur with 2.1.18.

Here is a full log:

Please describe your platform.
I guess the log is the same as in T2980, thus I will merge them.

macOS 10.10, 10.11, 10.12

They're nearly the same, but T2980 has the workaround for this issue in
place (running make install first), so that it's clear the ssh-import.scm
problem is an independent issue.

Thanks. Can you please run the test again with

make check BIN_PREFIX=/usr/local/Cellar/gnupg21/2.1.19

Hi, I have been assigned to this bug, and we'll get to the bottom of this.

The plan is to patch the tests to dump the location of tools it thinks it should
use. I'd like you to run the tests with that patch then.

Thanks for working with us on these issues. It is really appreciated.
