#3155 closed defect (fixed)

msgfmt detection not working

Reported by: lschiere Owned by: elb
Milestone: Component: unclassified
Version: Keywords:


There are two aspects to this bug.

1) do not detect msgfmt on my system, which is required to successfully build in the po directory, however configure does not fail. This is despite the fact that it appears that we test for it, and should be failing if it does not detect it.

I am judging that it does not detect it based on the fact that in the resulting makefile, these variables are left unset.

2)this failure is happening even though msgfmt is in fact installed, and is installed in a directory that is in my path, and from which other binaries are found for the configure process.

This is an OSX system using macports.

msgfmt is being found in /opt/local/bin/msgfmt but a test compilation in the gettext check is failing.

Ahh ... somehow I lost track of this bug, I'm glad sadrul pinged it.

Luke, is this still happening? What is the actual error that you get at build time?

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Now that I have a build environment set back up on my laptop, I cannot duplicate this with 10.5. I cannot test to see if it would still be a problem with 10.4 (which has a different version of xtools), but I am going to close this.
