Description Ed Maste freebsd_committer 2014-08-04 15:12:19 UTC
COLLATION_FIX defaults to off, and has as its description:
COLLATION_FIX_DESC=    fix string collation

This is completely unclear for an end-user.  Does leaving it disabled (default) result in a glib with broken string collation?

Spelunking in the Makefile's history shows it was first introduced in r171239, which gives more context:
http://svnweb.freebsd.org/ports?view=revision&revision=171239

> Fix string collation by using the icu library, since the FreeBSD libc
> does not support UTF-8 collation.

Thanks. Improved. _DESC lines appear to have a character limit in dialog menu. ;\
