(1) qwtplot3d doesn't require qwt
(2) the PKGBUILD doesn't work (error message: "/etc/profile.d/ No such file or directory") (using the Arch Build System). In order to get it to build, I applied the attached patch, which (a) removes the dependency, (b) removes a call to /etc/profile.d/ (which isn't listed as a file in the qt4 package), and (c) renames qmake to qmake-qt4.

With the patch applied, I've built qwtplot3d, installed it, and used it in another program, so it seems to work fine without qwt.

Additional info:
* package version(s): qwtplot3d-0.2.7-6, qt4-4.8.5-2
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
# abs
$ cd ~
$ mkdir qwtplot3d_build
$ cp /var/abs/extra/qwtplot3d/* ~/qwtplot3d_build
$ cd qwtplot3d_build
$ (optional) sed -i "s| 'qwt'||" PKGBUILD
$ makepkg

I'm just wondering what the status of this is. The build has been fixed (at least) as of qwtplot3d-0.2.7-7, but I still don't think qwtplot3d actually depends on qwt. Can this dependency be removed?

this can be closed, qwt is not listed as dependency
