Description jbq 2006-07-19 23:40:15 UTC
Once x11-toolkits/xview is installed, many ports fail to build because there is
a conflict between xview's msgfmt installed in X11BASE and gettext's msgfmt
installed in LOCALBASE.  Depending on the PATH, the first can be picked instead
of the latter and ports depending on gettext's msgfmt fail to build.

This is because most ports do not specify the exact location of msgfmt in their
build.  The right location to pick is ${LOCALBASE}/bin/msgfmt

See http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-ports/2006-July/033956.html

Fix: 

Workaround is to change PATH to /usr/local/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/bin:/bin or
to rename /usr/X11R6/bin/msgfmt to /usr/X11R6/bin/xview_msgfmt

The same problem for xgettext.

Maybe xview's Makefile should rename those files in post-install.  Another
solution is to fix all ports depending on gettext to specify
MSGFMT=${LOCALBASE}/bin/msgfmt in CONFIGURE_ENV.
How-To-Repeat: 0. set PATH /usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin
1. install xview
2. try to install devel/subversion, audio/audacity, mail/mutt-ng or
   audio/sound-juicer, the build will fail when invoking msgfmt

  Modified files:
    x11-toolkits/xview   Makefile pkg-plist 
  Log:
  Don't install msgfmt and xgettext.
  They may break devel/gettext if a user has set /usr/X11R6/bin before
  /usr/local/bin.

State Changed
From-To: open->closed

I have modified the xview port to not install these programs.
