Well, it seems to emerge fine, but the problem is that
although it builds all the .gmo files, it doesn't install them.
And what's broken ? It seems to work fine for me with different locales.
Well, 1.5.13-r1 ebuild (probably 1.5.13 too) don't install .gmo file in /usr/share/locale, so mutt is NOT localized (no translations)
It is definitely localized. And it installs .mo files under /usr/share/locale/xx/LC_MESSAGES
This is not a bug unless something is really broken with your locale.
Sorry, a missunderstanding.
It was not a bug in mutt. Till now I had LINGUAS unset,
and portage installed all linguas, now with LINGUAS unset
it installs none.
One more correction:
for some reason both emerge and ebuild (portage-2.1.1)
set LINGUAS="" when it's unset, that is what causes this bug.
Thats weird... it should install all locales in such case (IMHO of course).
Please feel free to bug the portage folks :)
