Description Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2008-06-10 08:18:54 UTC
x11-misc/shared-mime-info versions do not allow declaring USE=-nls to avoid the gettext dependency. It would be nice if it would compile the translations with xgettext only with USE=nls as many other packages do - that way we can have the shared-mime-info xml database on embedded systems that do not support gettext at this moment.
An alternative could be to ship *.gmo files (by upstream) alongside the .po in tarball and not rebuilding them by default, just like glib and gtk+ do.
Then I could just INSTALL_MASK them as my embedded system doesn't have libintl at the moment.

unfortunately, adding USE=nls and appropriate changes to the ebuild didn't change anything to what got installed in 0.60.
Comment 2 Samuli Suominen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-09-30 21:04:28 UTC
So here is quick instructions howto build and install shared-mime-info without gettext and intltool installed. Do we want to support USE="-nls" in the ebuild with this hack?

sed -i -e '/INTLTOOL/d'

[ .. ]

emake update-mime-database || die

[ .. ]

dobin update-mime-database || die
insinto /usr/share/mime/packages
doins || die

I stopped caring about USE=-nls 1+ years ago, so not sure if it's important to any other people or not.
