Description Julian Ospald 2013-02-26 19:20:09 UTC
gettext convention is:
a) unset LINGUAS => install all languages
b) empty LINGUAS => install none

The problem is, when we have any linguas_* flag in IUSE (e.g. when additional dependencies are needed), then portage will always set LINGUAS variable. In case none is enabled (which could be a) or b) ), this will result in:


thus possibly overwriting the users choice of an _unset_ LINGUAS.

This behavior is not present when IUSE does not contain any linguas_*.
