At this point in time, what I have to do every time something requires a
rebuild of shared-mime-info is to wait for the build to crash, then to
and remove the following lines :
Starting line 760. Then make again and it works.
Not really the way I imagine things for NetBSD users in general...
It would indeed be better for this critical package (which breaks GNOME
every time while it is not fixed) to be properly patched.
