I have PREFER_PKGSRC=yes because I want anything and everything that can
come from pkgsrc to do so.
As such, I think I am hitting problems most of you don't normally
Here's another one:
sysutils/gnome-vfs2's buildlink phase creates the .buildlink/bin/msgfmt
script, which tries to run msgfmt from pkgsrc's installed bin/msgfmt.
msgfmt is supplied by devel/gettext - however, nothing has depended on
devel/gettext yet, so it hasn't been built.
When the build of gnome-vfs2 tries to run .buildlink/bin/msgfmt
I get "no such file or directory" for the real msgfmt, because it hasn't
been built in pkgsrc.
If I explicitly build devel/gettext
and return to my build of libgnome, everything works fine.
So, what kind of dependency on devel/gettext is missing, and where is it
Eventually I want to be able to just build the top level packages I need
and let pkgsrc pull in whatever is required, and I don't want to have to
explicitly depend on gettext - that's the idea of pkgsrc, right?
Any help greatly appreciated,
