Description Dmitry Marakasov freebsd_committer 2014-06-11 12:34:18 UTC
Many Qt ports require lrelease/lupdate to compile their translations. These programs are provided by qt4-linguist port, however that port provided much more that just these utilities, namely GUI applications for translation and pulls in many heavyweight depends, such as qt4-gui, qt4-assistant (which in turn pulls qt4-webkit, xml, network, sql etc.). With that, compiling a simple CLI application which just uses qt4-corelib (astro/gpsbabel for example) pulls in too much unneeded heavyweight and gui stuff.

That said, lrelease/lupdate should be split out of qt4-linguist, and corresponding USE_QT4 item added so qt applications using nls may be build without pulling extraneous depends.

I just hit this with net-p2p/bitcoin, which uses linguist_build for exactly this reason, which then results (among others) in the following dependency chain:

linguist_build -> linguist -> designer -> webkit

+1 on splitting out lrelease & lupdate

initial patch to splitout tools

[propably still needs some work].

URL: https://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/ports/379843

  Introduce new USE_QT4 component linguisttools for lrelease/lupdate tools
  split from from devel/qt4-linguist (similar to Qt 5 ports). These console
  tools are often used for localization support in Qt ports, having them
  standalone is quite useful. This work is based on Tobias Berner patch [1].
