iasl - ACPI Source Language compiler/decompiler

How much "stuff" does this formula install? Are these patches just for make install? Can Homebrew's install functions be used instead of patching?


I followed Debian's example in only having iasl built and installed to $HOMEBREW_PREFIX/bin, nothing else.

The second patch could be removed by using MacOS.prefer_64_bit (I think) to see if the compiled binary was placed in the bin32 or bin64 folders that are used by iasl's build system to store the binary before it is installed by make install, but the first patch would need to remain as far as I can tell, as cp is invoked by the standard compile target to actually put the iasl binary into the bin32/bin64 folder.

We have a request for acpica in #19913 that seems to package iasl; should this be closed in favor of that?

I would say yes, as it does everything this iasl formula does but without the patches and also installs the full set of ACPICA tools to boot.
