Description Christian Weisgerber freebsd_committer 2002-07-28 04:40:01 UTC
gmake segfaults on start-up if run with a locale other than the
default "C".

Specifically, in gettext.c:read_alias_file(), alias entries are
handled as a map of alias/value pairs, which are pointers into a
string pool where the actual string data is stored.  When the string
pool is full it is realloc()ed but the pointers to the data are not

The fix below is taken from the head of the glibc CVS repository
(where gettext.c is from).  It updates the pointers into the
realloc()ed area.
