For some reason emerge didn't conclude the correct order for installing the ebuilds "gnome-base/libgtop", "dev-util/intltool" and "sys-devel/gettext".
While intltool was already installed (it seems it was already installed due to the 2007.0 basic installation), gettext wasn't. But libgtop requires gettext for intltool.
The solution to fix it manually is quiet easy - just install gettext first!
So I DO NOT search support, but I thought, there might exist an error in either one of the ebuilds for libgtop or intltool.
Unfortunatly I'm not experienced with ebuilds but what I figured so far, is that libgtop has a dependency for intltool, but latter not for gettext, thus emerge seemed not to have seen the need to install gettext first.
Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
Not really reproducable, except I delete my whole installation and start from the beginning. Anyway, the solution is just to simple!
intltool seems not to have dependencies for gettext, thought libgtop requires the latter for using intltool.
The only reason for this report is because I think there might be a missing dependency in either the ebuild of libgtop or intltool.
Reopen with full emerge log attached. Thanks.
