Hi Again tech-pkg:
After further review of the logs, I found many other packages who's
configure scripts find msgfmt as /usr/bin/msgfmt and do not create a
buildlink script for msgfmt.
So I think the real question now is, why does the buildlink phase for
which calls a msgfmt it expects pkgsrc to provide, when it doesn't depend
gettext so that pkgsrc will provide it?
Seems that gnome-vfs2 should either:
create work/.buildlink/bin/msgfmt AND provide the dependency on gettext
not create work/.buildlink/bin/msgfmt AND NOT provide the dependency on
Creating work/.buildlink/bin/msgfmt but not depending on gettext is what
created the "no such file or directory" msgfmt error I am hitting.
So, what is the right solution (and how/where do I implement it)?
1) add a dependency from gnome-vfs2 ----> gettext
2) somehow get gnome-vfs2's buildlink phase to NOT create the msgfmt script
Any help will be greatly appreciated,
