Description Martin von Gagern 2005-07-01 06:08:00 UTC
If USE=nls and LINGUAS is set, only the requested languages of man pages should be built.

IMHO, it would be better to solve this globally in Bug 96283.
Comment 3 Martin von Gagern 2005-07-01 06:59:03 UTC
I think LINGUAS is the better approach. But this shoul perhaps be discussed
somewhere more general, e.g. in this bug 96283. Anyway, as far as I can see,
this solution based on is still somewhat in the future. So for now
it would be easy to apply this patch, and if at some time it is decided to use, all ebuilds using LINGUAS should be reviewed anyway.

Yeah, I agree. Anyway, some solution is needed so that we don't have to install
useless cruft.

i misunderstood the issue

use localepurge ... updating the man ebuild is wrong

Comment 6 Martin von Gagern 2005-07-01 15:31:39 UTC
Why should I build some stuff only to delete it afterwards? Why not skip
building it in the first place, especially if the configure script supports it?
Comment 7 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-07-02 07:51:57 UTC
fair enough, added patch to cvs
