Description René Rhéaume 2014-02-01 02:22:41 UTC
There used to be a patch for xdg-user-dirs-0.14 that was rejected upstream because  it was also disabling NLS and replacing a function strndup with strdup, which have different semantics. However, the external libiconv part is relevant for uclibc systems (and possibly BSD too) relying on an external iconv implementation. This patch only contains the external iconv support enabling a build on uclibc systems.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install lilblue
2. emerge -1 =x11-misc/xdg-user-dirs-0.15
Actual Results:  
emake failed

Expected Results:  
xdg-user-dirs installed on system
