Description Adam Weinberger freebsd_committer 2019-06-08 16:48:26 UTC
Hi Po-Chuan,

I'm curious about your thoughts on this patch. It adds an NLS option to p5-Locale-libintl, to disable the gettext dependency.

The problem is that texinfo, used by a huge proportion of the ports tree, has an NLS option to disable gettext, but it's brought in as a runtime dependency anyway because of p5-Locale-libintl.

With this patch, texinfo builds happily without gettext being around. p5-Locale-libintl also passes all the included tests.

I think it's OK but I didn't see the patch. :)

And of course I deleted the patch as soon as I submitted the bug report. I’ll regenerate it once I get home.

Okay, let’s see if it’s any easier to evaluate a patch when it’s actually attached

It works fine in a clean environment (gettext-runtime is absent). I've added an extra patch for Makefile.PL to ensure it does not use gettext-runtime when it's already installed.

Good call! I hadn't considered building outside poudriere.
