Bug#857062: flightgear: man page terrasync(1) exists but no binary found

073plan
Package: flightgear
Version: 1:2016.4.4+dfsg-2
Severity: normal

While playing around flightgear, I found that the Debian package didn't ship
terrasync binary. However, the package ships terrasync(1) man page. This does
not make sense and I couldn't enable terrasync function in the game now.

Perhaps we should add terrasync binary back into this packages.

Thanks.

The preferred way to use Terrasync has for several years been the one
built into the main fgfs binary (enabled with File > Scenery Download),
not the separate binary.

If this doesn't work (and especially if ~/.fgfs/fgfs.log contains ERROR:
no http-server found, terrasync will be disabled), it's probably their
recent DNS issues (
https://sourceforge.net/p/flightgear/mailman/message/35707927/ ), not
this bug.

(I'm not sure why the separate Terrasync isn't built, as it still looks
to exist and be on-by-default in CMakeLists.txt, but you probably don't
want to use it.)

In the recent versions, the CMakeLists.txt file for terrasync is
completely commented out, so the separate binary is never built.

Upstream commit 3f7e59a.

The manpage is added to the install list at man/CMakeLists.txt:22, so
commenting out that as well will probably get rid of it (though I
haven't tried this).
