I need to have gettext build without needing libintl (because I use pkgsrc
also on glibc systems).
Our gettext in pkgsrc is out-of-date.
rainier:/usr/pkgsrc$ grep gettext doc/TODO
New gettext source suggests two packages: gettext-runtime (maybe we should
call this gettext-base?) and gettext-tools.
So I packaged this up. I tested builds and installs under Linux and
I have imported gettext-runtime and gettext-tools to pkgsrc-wip.
Please try them and share your suggestions.
gettext-runtime installs libintl* on NetBSD but not Linux (by default).
Under NetBSD, gettext-tools also installs libintl -- so this needs to be
fixed (because it conflicts). Under Linux, it installs it as "libgnuintl".
If you need msgfmt (BUILD_USES_MSGFMT), then gettext-tools would be
If you need libintl (on non-Linux), then gettext-runtime could be used.
Maybe we should have a mk/libintl.mk file?
