Description Anton Berezin 2008-09-19 13:40:02 UTC
When trying to build the latest version of the devel/icu port,
the following occurs:

gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/ports/devel/icu/work/icu/source/test'
gmake: Leaving directory `/usr/ports/devel/icu/work/icu/source/test'
cd /usr/ports/devel/icu/work/icu/source/test/cintltst && /usr/bin/env  LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/ports/devel/icu/work/icu/source/lib:/usr/ports/devel/icu/work/icu/source/tools/ctestfw  ./cintltst

# env|grep da

# unset LANG
# make
OK: All tests passed without error.

Since the tests are a part of the build, it is not possible
to build icu unless I change the locale settings.


One of the following:

 1. Report the bug upstream.
 1a. Or it could be a genuine problem with Danish locale in FreeBSD CURRENT.
 2. Modify the port to reset locale during the build.
 3. Do not run the tests as a part of the build.
 4. Something else I did not think about.
 5. Do nothing, let the user to figure it out.
See above.
